Thank you for being a reader of First Things. I’m grateful to have you as part of our conspiracy of truth.
You’ll be hearing from us more frequently over the next ten days as we continue our year-end donation campaign. Our goal is to raise $400,000 by the end of the year. With $160,814 already raised through generous donations in response to our recent appeal letter, we still have $239,186 to go.
I’m writing to ask you to help us reach this goal. If you’ve already given, thank you for your contribution. You can still help our campaign, however, by sharing our updates and appeals through Twitter and Facebook, or by sending this email to a friend.
First Things provides something indispensable. The magazine and website are places where faith has a voicea strong, articulate, and confident voice. We have something important to say, something true to say. And we need to be heard.
To be heard, we need your support.
Your support during this campaign will allow First Things to continue to produce thoughtful, incisive, and timely commentary in defense of religion in the public square. It will help us expand our presence online, reaching new audiences throughout the world and offering you, our readers, more digital content like videos of our lectures and events.
This past spring, readers like you contributed $477,645 to our spring donation appeal. These gifts helped underwrite the cost of publishing First Things, maintain firstthings.com, and fund our other work, including the Junior Fellows Program, symposia, evening lectures, and public events. We cannot do these things without the continued generosity of readers like you.
In the past, First Things supporters have come from among our print subscribers. Now, our online readership is large and growing. With this digital campaign we invite our online readers to become more deeply involved in First Things by investing in our mission.
With your help, we have shaped the conversation about religion, culture, and public life in the past. With your support, we’ll continue to do so in the future.
Will you help us make our goal by contributing to our end of year campaign today? Please click here to donate.
