Excellent Fundraising Response Leads to New $2,500 Challenge From Bob Parry’s Family

This community of truth tellers and committed advocates for peace is truly amazing. Less than a week after we launched our $5,000 Spring Fundraising Challenge Grant, we’ve exceeded that goal.

You’re making online independent journalism work in this digital age – and we can’t thank you enough. We still need a bit more in our effort to raise a total of $30,000, but we are getting closer everyday, thanks to you.

In response to last week’s success, Bob Parry’s wife Diane Duston and his four children, Sam, Nat, Liz and Jeff Parry are offering a new $2,500 challenge grant to encourage additional support for Consortiumnews.com’s spring fundraising goal.

“We’ve set a deadline of June 24, Bob’s birthday, to reach our ultimate goal. We can think of no better gift to honor his memory,” said Diane. Please donate today to our Spring Fundraising Campaign. And if you respond today, your gift will be matched $1-for-$1. A $135 donation will bring you a boxed set of three outstanding books by Robert Parry, the late founder and editor of Consortium News. (Due to increased rates for international shipping an additional postage fee for international orders is required; Please email info@consortiumnews.com to inquire about international shipping rates.) Thank you if you have already donated.

Many websites claim to be committed to the same goal we share – namely fierce, unapologetic, independent reporting you can find nowhere else. There are many worthy causes. But we believe this community is unique. We are not here to spread opinions or perceptions of reality. We are committed to facts, wherever that leads.

No compromises. No half-truths. Together, we will ensure truly independent investigative journalism always has a home online.

Please donate today to support our shared commitment to truth, justice, and unencumbered investigative journalism. Donations will be matched $1-for-$1 up to $2,500 by Bob’s family, doubling the value of your support.

This is your democracy. As Ben Franklin once said, this is a “Republic, if you can keep it.”

It’s now up to each and every one of us to defend democracy and progress.

Please donate today to support our devotion to truth and to taking on the powerful special interests and institutions who are committed to spreading false narratives and group think.

Thank you for your support,

Diane Duston, Sam, Nat, Liz and Jeff Parry
