We hope that you and your family are having a terrific holiday season. We at the Washington Monthly wish you a successful and happy New Year. In 2015, we hope to continue playing a critical role in fighting the forces that want to keep success and happiness limited to the one percent…but we can only do so with your help.

In whatever amount you can, please make a tax-deductible donation today. Thank you.
