UPDATE: The $5000 Matching Goal has been met, now there's a new matching goal of $1000!
I feel confident our supporters can meet this by Christmas Eve.
It’s down to us: the people who fight.
We leave 2023 with the knowledge that unless we act, the Historic American Nation will be silenced forever. Donald Trump, the leading candidate in our next presidential race, has been removed from the ballot in Colorado. America’s southern border is completely out of control. Statues that honor our Nation’s shared history are being willfully destroyed by those determined to unreconcile the tragedies of our difficult past. Our legislators inflict mortifying scandals upon us through corruption and degeneracy, and everywhere we turn the honorable people who built this country out of nothing are vilified and scorned. Those of us who fight for America, the future and each other, are under serious threat.
This month alone, my team has spent countless hours defending our free speech rights in court, defending our minor children from predatory journalists, and defending VDARE.com itself from debilitating hacking attempts.
Fortunately, I can see the growing ranks of people who fight, and we are determined to win. One of those fighters has stepped forward in this final hour to offer a $5,000 Matching Grant. A donation of any amount up to $5,000 will be matched, doubling the value of your gift toward immigration patriotism.
The Matching Grant challenge ends at midnight on December 24th, Pacific time (3 a.m. EST), since our gracious donor is from the West Coast!
At VDARE.com—501(c)(3) nonprofit—I see that determination at work every day in the reporting and analysis of my colleagues: From John Derbyshire’s inimitable podcast to Lance Welton’s groundbreaking coverage of the state of the sciences, VDARE.com has been a bullhorn for stories the powerful would silence.
In the age of tech media, we are at a disadvantage. We’re controversial. We take sides. Other websites depend on advertising revenue and advertisers don’t like people who take sides—people who are controversial. They’re afraid.
To keep truly independent news sources like VDARE.com alive in an increasingly totalitarian landscape, we have to exist in partnership with our readers. We’re a few days from the close our end-of-year fundraiser and we still need over $140,000 by the end of December to make our $200,000 goal. Time is running out.
Donations of $100 a month (or $1,200 right now) will gain you membership to VDARE.com’s 1620 Society—an exclusive giving circle with benefits including a yearly meeting at VDARE’s Berkeley Springs Castle and a 1620 Society Lapel Pin. We’re honored that so many of you have joined already!
But if that isn’t something you’re in a position to do, even a $5, $10, $20 or $50 donation will push us forward—and with the current matching challenge it will be doubled for VDARE! We need your help and we’re down to the wire.
So please, give what you can to support VDARE.com today. We simply can’t do it without you.
