Four Ways to Help Consortiumnews
I know times are tough and there are many worthy causes deserving of your support. But I urge you to consider a tax-deductible donation to Consortiumnews.com, whether big or small. Honest information remains the key to democracy.
Here are four ways you can help us reach our modest spring fundraising goal:
First option: You can make a donation by credit card at the Web site or by check to Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); Suite 102-231; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Arlington VA 22201. Or you can use PayPal (our account is named after our e-mail address "firstname.lastname@example.org").
(Our parent organization, Consortium for Independent Journalism, is a 501-c-3 non-profit, so your contributions can be tax-deductible.)
For donations of $50 or more, we are also offering gift DVDs. For details, see below.
Second: if you'd rather spread out your support in smaller amounts, you can sign up for a monthly donation. With contributions of $10 or more a month, you can qualify for war correspondent Don North's DVD, "Yesterday's Enemies" about the lives of former Salvadoran guerrillas. For details, click here.
(If you sign up for a monthly donation and want to get Don's DVD, remember to contact us at email@example.com. If you prefer, we can substitute Robert Parry’s 1991 FRONTLINE documentary, “The Election Held Hostage,” also on DVD. Just ask.)
Third option: you can take advantage of our deep discount for the two-book set of Robert Parry's Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep (co-authored with Sam and Nat Parry). The price for the set is only $19, postage included. For details, click here.
Fourth: you can help us close out our warehouse space by buying full boxes of Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep for only $59. Each carton contains 28 paperbacks, or you can ask that we give you a mix of half and half, 14 of each. For details, click here and scroll down to the $59 offer. (By closing out our warehouse space, we can save nearly $200 a month.)
For the spring fundraiser, we are also offering special thank-you gifts that are not available anywhere else. For donations of $50 or more, you can select either a DVD of “The Election Held Hostage,” or a two-DVD set of the closed-door congressional debriefing of Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe (never before seen publicly).
The DVDs date back two decades, to 1991 when there was a brief opportunity to pry loose important secrets about the Reagan-Bush era. [Just e-mail us your choice at firstname.lastname@example.org. For a donation of $100 or more, you can get both gifts.]
(For more on the historical significance of these DVDs, see "A Two-Decade Detour into Empire.")
As always, we appreciate your help.
Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 as the Internet's first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.
