It’s never easy raising money for a nonprofit – and, these days, it’s harder than ever.

Uncertain economic conditions have ushered in a new era of austerity for nonprofits and is no exception. The recession has really cut into our donor base. The good news is that we’ve raised $20,000 from friends of this web site to be given as matching funds: if we can match it, we can have it.

The bad news is that this is not the solution to our budget woes: even if we match that $20,000, we’ll still be significantly short of our goal. That’s why we’re asking you to dig a little deeper this time and make that extra effort to put us over the top.

Since 1995, has been the go-to site for news of the War Party’s latest schemes and machinations. We’ve exposed their lies time and again, mobilizing our readers worldwide to stand up for peace. Now we need your immediate help in order to keep going.

Please – our situation is urgent. We must do a lot more than merely match this $20,000 from our donors just to keep our heads above water. If you think the cause of peace matters, then you must act today: please make your online contribution now.
