In case you were wondering how the 2014 online fundraising campaign worked out, the numbers are in, and they are the best ever. We received over $30,000 from 610 donors. That’s a 23% increase over last year in the number of people contributing, and an 18% increase in revenue. Believe me, these dollars are crucial to our ability to operate.

Thanks to all of you from all of us here at WaMo. We’ll try to reward your generosity and loyalty throughout 2015–beginning with the new issue of the magazine going online today!.

Our ideas can save democracy... But we need your help! Donate Now!
