This isn’t just a website. This is a community.
Today is the last day of our 2nd Quarter fundraiser for 2019 here at Eclectablog. We try not to do this too often. The fact is, none of here enjoys asking you to send us money. In truth, I am probably the worst fundraiser in progressive politics. But, I am so committed to our model where all of our regular contributors are compensated for their work and to not running annoying ads that ruin your experience on the site that I’m willing to put aside the uncomfortableness to do it.
When I took the plunge to stop running ads, I did so with one specific thought: If we are going to keep this going, this has to become a community where people can interact, share their experiences, and debate the important issues we write about on the site. This had to be the foundation of creating a sustainable site that allows us to keep our unique model in place. I wasn’t sure it could be done. As it turns out, it can!
This has been a more quiet fundraising week than most. We’ve only gotten a handful of small donations and no sustaining memberships. If you’ve been waiting to contribute and become a supporter of this amazing community, now is the time.
There are three ways for you to support our efforts. First, you can use the handy PayPal form at the top of the right sidebar to make a one-time donation via Paypal in the amount of your choice.
Second, you can send a check (which avoids Paypal taking out a percentage of your donation) to Chris Savage, P.O. Box 32, Dexter, MI 48130. Please make the check payable to “Eclectablog”.
Finally, you can become a monthly sustainer by making a recurring donation each month by using this form:
