More in Annual Pledge Drive News

Hey, look, it’s another reminder.

The Monthly‘s annual fundraising drive continues. While those who’ve already contributed have our most sincere thanks, I hope those who haven’t will consider making a tax-deductible donation. It 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. The image is from our 1980 cover story about safety problems with NASA’s space shuttle program. This was six before the Challenger blew up.

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 an 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, 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.
