Will We Make This Final Hurdle?

The good news: our last minute appeal for funds garnered over $25,000 in a single day – and we couldn't be more grateful.

The bad news: We're still not done…

Look, we didn't just arbitrarily pick a number as our fundraising goal: the truth is, if we don't raise $70,000 by the end of the week, we'll be laying off employees and making other cutbacks – noticeable cutbacks in our coverage and a reduced level of service in general.

We know many of you have come to rely on Antiwar.com as an invaluable resource, but its continuity is by no means assured. Unlike the War Party, which commands virtually unlimited resources, we scratch by on a relative pittance. It's amazing that we're able to get by on so little, but then again we run a tight ship. It'll be a lot tighter if we have to lay off half our staff, or fire our regular columnists because we can't afford to pay them. And that new computer Justin Raimondo's been asking for – his computer has taken to spontaneously shutting down – will just have to remain a distant dream.

Because of your generosity, Antiwar.com has averted complete disaster, i.e., nonexistence. But we aren't out of the woods yet. Failure to meet our goal means that, sometime very soon, we'll be handing out pink slips and burdening the few survivors with an impossible workload. The quality of our coverage will drop, and you'll notice it right away. We want to avoid this, and there's only one way to do it.

You can help put us over the top by contributing as much as you can as soon as you can. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible, and you have the satisfaction of knowing that, instead of going to the war machine, your dollars are going to the cause of a more peaceful foreign policy. Don't delay – make your contribution today.

In the first five days of our drive, 1,089 of you gave a total of $49,905. We are getting back on track to reach $70,000 to keep Antiwar.com running for the next quarter. Please help make our goal.
