The Monthly’s annual pledge drive goes on . . .

Guess what, here’s yet another reminder.

I mentioned previously that the Monthly could operate if every reader donated just $1. And that’s true because we are fortunate to have quite a lot of readers. But let’s face it, neither your sending a buck nor our expecting every one of you to do so is, um, stupid. How about this instead: Think about how much the existence of this site is worth to you — $1 per month ($12) . . . $1 per week ($52) . . . $1 per day ($365) . . . more? Please jus consider the Monthly’s value to you, and send it. Washington Monthly is a non-profit, so your contribution is tax-deductible.

Give generously, and if you decide to donate $150 or more, we’ll send you an individually signed hardcover copy of Monthly founder Charles Peters’ latest book, Lyndon B. Johnson, while they last.

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.

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. 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.

Yes, I’ll make a donation
