Mon Dec 15 2003 (Updated 06/08/16)Indybay Urgently Needs Your Financial Support
Indybay is more than a website for radical news. We host an incredible trove of archives going back over 15 years! Our all-volunteer collective maintains a collection of hundreds of thousands of articles, event listings, photos, videos, audio files, and PDFs. Beyond the labor we pour into it, the costs to do all this are minuscule in comparison with the service that the website continues to provide to the Bay Area, Monterey Bay, and Northern California activist communities. But now we need your help.
Indybay needs to raise $1,600 in order to continue operating
Indybay has expenses that amount to over a hundred dollars every month for hosting this website. It's been nearly five years since Indybay last held an official fundraising drive, and now we need to ask for donations again to cover our costs into the foreseeable future. Indybay only requests donations from site contributors and readers when funds are truly needed, and right now they are. We'll be happy to end this drive as soon as we reach our goal. Please donate now so we can end it soon.
Become a Friend of Indybay to help us secure our financing into the future
In order to help us secure our financing into the future, we have created the "Friends of Indybay" program whereby we are encouraging all who can afford it to contribute monthly. The biggest benefit to becoming a Friend of Indybay is simply knowing that you are a key ally in keeping Indybay financially viable, allowing the site to continue to grow and improve as it serves numerous activist communities across Northern California.
Note: If you would like your donation to be tax deductible, you will need to donate to us through our § 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor, Media Alliance (EIN 94-2563400). Make your check payable to "Media Alliance", write "donation to SF Bay Area IMC" as the memo, and mail it to:
SF Bay Area IMC
The San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center is an all-volunteer grassroots organization committed to using media production and distribution as a tool to promote social and economic justice. Since the year 2000, the IMC has been a cooperative effort by hundreds of independent journalists and media activists. We are neither owned nor funded by big conglomerates, foundations, or advertisers — that's why we need your support to sustain our efforts!
