Indybay Urgently Needs You To Donate To Continue Operating

The SF Bay Area Independent Media Center is a grassroots organization truly committed to using media production and distribution as a tool to promote social and
economic justice. The IMC is a cooperative effort of hundreds of
independent journalists and media activists. We are neither owned nor
funded by big conglomerates or advertisers -- that's why we urgently need your
support now to sustain our efforts!
If you find the coverage on Indybay to be a useful part of your socially conscious life, we ask that you make a small donation of just $5-10. Every little bit you can give will help us maintain this website and keep our media lab operating as a community resource. If you are a heavy user and visit the site daily or even weekly, please consider a medium-sized donation of $20-40. If you regularly publish to the newswire, especially posting larger media files, you can help us continue to be a great open-publishing resource and remain on solid footing into the future by making a more sizable donation of your choice.

Please, DONATE whatever you can afford. We need money to pay rent on our space in the Mission District and we have to upgrade our server's hard drives very soon. We are running out of disk space fast and we have perhaps a month left before the drives completely fill up.

Part of the reason we are running out of server space is that we try not to delete old content. Videos and pictures from protests four years ago are still available on our site. If you value keeping this content on our site and want it to continue, please donate.

Since the server running this site uses four identical hot-swap scsi drives (in a RAID array), upgrading is not cheap. Between rent and disks we need upwards of $2000 to assure our continued operations for the next 6 months. We are a 100% volunteer organization and all donations go directly toward operating costs.
