Pledge Drive Continues


Today wraps up the first week of the Monthly‘s annual pledge drive.

The Monthly is a nonprofit organization. We have print and online ads, but these only covers a small part of our expenses, which means that we depend on contributions from readers to stay running.

If you’re a regular reader of the College Guide, Ed Kilgore’s Political Animal, or the print magazine, 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 to the right is from a 1988 cover story we published about the evolution of the Republican party.)

So, I hope we can count on your support. This year we’ll send those who donate $150 or more a signed copy of Monthly founder Charles Peters’ latest book, Lyndon B. Johnson.

We sincerely appreciate those of you who’ve already shown generous support, and hope other readers will take a moment to help out. You can donate online, through PayPal, or through the mail.

Thank you.

If you enjoyed this article, consider making a donation to help us produce more like it. The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works —and how to make it work better. More than fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
