The Annual Pledge Drive Continues

THE ANNUAL PLEDGE DRIVE CONTINUES…. This is Day Two of the Monthly‘s annual fundraising drive. Our most sincere thanks to those of you who contributed yesterday, and for those who haven’t, here’s a reminder that your tax-deductible donation can make a big difference.

If you’re a regular, you know that the Washington Monthly offers the kind of cutting-edge reporting and analysis the country needs now more than ever, breaking big stories well ahead of major mainstream outlets.

But to keep us going strong, we need a little help. Your donation will not only help the magazine, but also help support this blog.

Also, this year, the publishers are adding a little additional incentive.

So give generously — $25, $50, $100 — and if you donate $150 or more, we’ll send you a hardcover copy of Monthly founder Charles Peters’ latest book, Lyndon B. Johnson, individually signed by the author. It’s the latest in “The American Presidents” series. The New Yorker says it is “illuminating” and “a resonant portrait of a man of prodigious political abilities, who was driven, but ultimately undone, by his temperamental flaws.”

While we already have print and online ads, this only covers part of our overall expenses, which means that we depend on contributions from readers to stay up and humming.

So, I hope we can count on your support. Just click here to help out. You can donate online, through PayPal, or through the mail.

Thanks.
