NMPolitics.net has fallen a little bit further behind my goal of raising $18,000 by April 30 each of the last few weeks. Please, if you can afford to do so, make a donation today.
Through the first two months of this year’s fundraising drive, I emphasized my push to expand NMPolitics.net by hiring reporting help. But there’s a more basic issue I’ve failed to stress thus far.
NMPolitics.net can’t survive without your donations.
Frankly, NMPolitics.net has fallen a little bit further behind my goal of raising $18,000 by April 30 each of the last few weeks. We’re not currently on track to reach that goal. I still hope we can get there, which is why I’m asking you to make a contribution today.

I still hope to hire help. I strongly believe in the importance of diversity in reporting, and right now, this site has none. I’m the only reporter.
But the reality is that I would have shut this site down two years ago if I hadn’t met the $10,000 goal I set during my first fundraising drive. Your donations are that important. Advertising alone can’t sustain this site.
So far this year, 116 people from across the state and nation, and the political spectrum, have come together to contribute $10,200 to NMPolitics.net. That’s an impressive and humbling display of support.
There are still a few weeks to improve on that total.
I’m not going to change the fundraising goal or the end date for this fundraising drive. I’m still aiming for $18,000 by the end of this month. I hope you’ll help us get there.
It’s doable. Nearly 200,000 unique visitors came to NMPolitics.net in 2011. If even a small fraction of you – say, 5,000 – donated $10 apiece, we’d blow this year’s $18,000 fundraising goal out of the water.
You can give a one-time contribution in any amount, or you can sign up to have your credit or debit card automatically charged $10 or $20 each month with the ability to cancel at any time.
Those who sign up for automatic contributions will receive a monthly newsletter containing exclusive analysis and interesting tidbits about what’s happening in New Mexico and news about NMPolitics.net. Those who give a one-time contribution of at least $120 will also receive the monthly newsletter for a year.
To those of you who have already given, thanks for your support! I hope the rest of you will make donations today, if you can afford to do so, by clicking on one of the three buttons at the top of this post.
Even if you can’t afford to donate, know that you’re welcome here and I appreciate your involvement with NMPolitics.net!
