Please Support Commonweal on #GivingTuesday

Support Commonweal on #GivingTuesday 2016

#GivingTuesday is a national effort to encourage nonprofit donations on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and I hope you’ll take a moment and support us here at Commonweal.

At a time when facts and reasoned argument have been pushed to the margins, Commonweal stands for civil debate, stubborn faith in liberal democracy, and a strong desire for the common good. We'll need more of those than ever in 2017.

If you’re not currently a subscriber, or one of our Associates, we need your help especially. As you know, we generally keep a substantial proportion of the articles on our website free. But to keep doing that, we need your donation. We're looking for at least 100 new contributors to support us today, and I hope you'll decide to be one of them.

Even a small contribution of as little as $5 or $10 is a great encouragement to all of us. Our easy and secure #GivingTuesday donation form is here.

Thomas Baker is the publisher of Commonweal
