NDN Kicks Off Fall Fundraising Drive - Can You Help?

Today, NDN kicks off a new, important fall fundraising drive. Our goal is to raise an additional $100,000 by the end of October, bringing in the last bit we need to reach our 2009 fundraising goals before the crush of the winter holiday season.

You can support our effort with a contribution of $25, $50, $250, $1,000 or more by visiting our site or clicking on this link today.

As you are aware, NDN does not make solicitations like this very often, and only when we really need the help. I am proud to say that despite the tough economic climate NDN and its affiliate, the New Policy Institute, are on track to raise as much as we raised last year, and perhaps even exceed 2008 levels. But given how unpredictable this year has been, we don’t want to wait till December to find out whether we hit our year end numbers, competing all the while with family time and other charitable giving that comes at that time of year.  If we can raise this additional money by October 31st, we will hit our year end numbers, and will end the year having hit our programmatic goals and in good shape to take on the many important battles of 2010.

Over the coming weeks, on our site and this blog, I will be providing even great context on why we believe that NDN is deserving of your support.  Several of our most loyal supporters have already stepped up to make initial contributions, and to help encourage others to do so. I hope that you too will do the same at some point over the next few weeks.

These are exciting and challenging times for those of us in the center-left think tank business. I am pleased with the contribution NDN is making, and hope that we can count on you to help us end the year as strong as we began it. 

Thank you.
