Keep CounterVortex alive with a year-end donation

We at CounterVortex understand that we have a niche audience. Our ultra-dissident perspective as well as the fact the we cover "obscure" wars, conflicts and social struggles outside the media spotlight, means that we will never have a mass readership that can raise thousands of dollars (as do our frankly rival websites that successfully play to the crowd). We accept this, and indeed wear it as a badge of pride. But we need to know that we have, at least, a small and dedicated readership that can raise hundreds of dollars once a year. Our modest goal for our year-end fund-drive is just $500—less than half of our annual operating costs (web-hosting, domain registration, site maintenance & development, etc). With multiple crises now converging—preparations for a domestic coup d'etat, war moves against Iran, the political weaponizing of a pandemic—the world situation is actually far more desperate now than when we first launched our website, long ago, in the immediate aftermath of 9-11. We are convinced that our voice, marginal as it may be, is at this moment more imperative than ever. We need your support. Please come through for us.

Winter fund-drive goal met!

Thanks to a $65 donation from the Marxist-Humanist Initiative in New York City, we have reached our winter fund-drive goal of $500! A big "thank you" to all our supporters!

However, as we have stressed, this is still less than half of our annual operating expenses (web-hosting, domain registration, site maintenance & development, etc). So we do need donations year-round to sustain this 20-year project. So... Who's next?

Winter fund-drive goal exceeded!

A reader in Oakland, Calif, has just donated $50 to help keep CounterVortex alive. So we have exceeded our modest winter fund-drive goal of $500!

However, as we have stressed, even $550 is still less than half of our annual operating expenses (web-hosting, domain registration, site maintenance & development, etc). So we do need donations year-round to sustain this 20-year project. So... Who's next?

Summer fund-drive off to a good start

Two readers, one in Manhattan and the other Portland, Maine, have donated a combined total of $70 to sustain the work of CounterVortex. Can we break at least $100 (a small fraction of our annual operating costs)? Who's next?
