THE MONTHLY’S ANNUAL FUNDRAISING DRIVE CONTINUES …

Our most sincere thanks to those of you who have contributed already, and for those who haven’t, here’s a reminder that your tax-deductible donation can make a big difference.

If you’re a regular, you know that the Washington Monthly offers the kind of cutting-edge reporting and analysis the country needs now more than ever, breaking big stories well ahead of major mainstream outlets.

But to keep us going strong, we need a little help. Your donation will not only help the magazine, but also help support Political Animal and our other blogs.

Also, while they last, we are are adding a little additional incentive:

Please give generously — $25, $50, $100 — and if you donate $150 or more, we’ll send you a hardcover copy of Monthly founder Charles Peters’ latest book in “The American Presidents” series, Lyndon B. Johnson, individually signed by the author. The New Yorker says it is “illuminating” and “a resonant portrait of a man of prodigious political abilities, who was driven, but ultimately undone, by his temperamental flaws.” Enjoy it yourself or give it as a gift.

While we already have print and online ads, this only covers part of our overall expenses, which means that we depend on contributions from readers to stay up and humming.

So, can we count on your support? Just click here to help out. You’ll be able to donate online, through PayPal, or through the mail. If you would like to spread out your donation over the year, you can join our many readers who use a monthly amount.

Thanks.

Paul Glastris is the editor in chief of the Washington Monthly. This article was supported by the American Independent Institute.

    I will consider donating when you get rid of captcha.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess you'd get better results at a different time of year. I know the theory in the fundraising community is "Hit 'em at Christmas. They're in a giving mood and they won't notice until it's too late." But the theory in the community behind my desk is "Godamighty! Look at how much money I'm spending this month."

    Also, what CDW said.
