We Don’t Believe in Last Chances. Except This Time.

Thank you if you responded to our fund appeal. If not, this is our last ask and your last chance. Either way, this message is for you.

Dear Portside Reader,

We are happy to have many Portside readers who do not donate money for this project. If you’re one of them, we hope you continue to enjoy this material and put it to good use. We’re happy to share material with you because we share values and visions.

If you’ve already contributed to our fund drive, thanks a million (which is way more than we get).

If you’re thinking about contributing to Portside, here are a few fun facts to weigh:

If every Portside reader contributed just $1, it would cover all of our costs for a year.

Not a single dollar of contributions goes to staff costs. This is an all-volunteer project. But …

… when readers do contribute, no matter how little, we feel really good about it. The uplift is better than a monetary reward. It reinforces our conviction that we’re in this struggle to achieve a better world together with lots of like-minded people, and that is the only guarantee of success.

We send out what we believe to be interesting and useful information every day, no matter the twists and turns of events. We try to stay on course. We send very few fund appeals. We are winding down our annual fund appeal. Promise.

You can also contribute to Portside by sending us material or by introducing a friend or coworker.

A luta continua,
