Hi, I’m Paul Jay at The Real News Network.

I’d like you to consider making a monthly donation. During this fundraising campaign we ask people to donate and trigger the matching grant, so we kind of skew to one-time donations because people think if they donate a bigger amount one time it will get matched, and that’s more effective than perhaps a monthly donation. But monthly donations are also matched dollar for dollar for an entire twelve months.

Monthly donations are critical to our long term work. They allow us to plan. It’s a real base of sustainability for the organization. So if you donate $10, which is $120 a year, we get $240. $100 a month, we get $200.

So please consider giving monthly. Having this ongoing source of income gives us enormous confidence to be able to strengthen our work. So please donate monthly, and help us make Real News.
