The Launch of our Mid-Year Fundraiser!

June 10, 2020

We realise there is a lot going on right now. We debated whether to run with the fundraiser at all — if it was right to be taking up bandwidth and calls for donations. Meant to launch last week, we've delayed until today meaning a shorter fundraising period — but ultimately we rely on this regular mid-year fundraising drive to keep the project going, so decided to forge ahead (let's see what happens!).

We don’t have big sponsors, we don’t do intrusive advertising, instead we are kept alive by donations from you, our wonderful community of readers. If you like the project, and would like to see it continue, then please do consider donating. We need your help, now more than ever.

You can support us either through a one-off donation or, even better, by becoming a "Friend of The Public Domain Review" and so joining our club of loyal supporters each of whom pledge an annual donation, creating a bedrock of support vital to the project.

Our goal is to get 200 new friends before midnight (PST) on June 18th.

In addition to the warm glow of giving and having the PDR in your life for another year, Friends will also receive a few lovely things in return for their generosity. These include our legendary postcard packs — 8 beautiful postcards curated around a theme, with a textual insert — sent out twice-a-year. The coming set is themed on TOUCH and will be sent out exclusively to Friends who've come on board before midnight on June 18th.

Additional Friend perks include a 10% discount on prints, being listed in a special page of honour on the site and in our PDR Press books, as well as an end-of-year letter from the Editor.
