You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,
The Guernica Team
Fundraising, Donations, and Hurricane Sandy
November 9, 2012
Although Guernica is an international magazine, many of us live and work here in New York. We are extraordinarily fortunate that the hurricane didn’t cause us any direct loss, but many people, small businesses, and other non-profits have not been so lucky. In the past few weeks, we announced that we were conducting our annual giving campaign. We would like to thank all those who supported us before the hurricane and ask that all who were considering giving redirect their gifts to those who need help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Others need it more than we do. New York is returning to normalcy, but with a nor’easter upon us and many still without housing or power, your support is still needed.
Occupy Sandy was one of the first to organize volunteer efforts, and offers many opportunities to donate or volunteer. We are rallying, and we hope our community of readers, contributors, and friends will join us in supporting New York and the tri-state area during this time of need.
For our NYC readers, we hope you’ll consider giving to some local non-profits, such as The Kitchen, Smack Mellon, and Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBT Youth; whatever you can donate will help them rebuild so much of what was lost after Sandy.
Readers like you make Guernica possible. Please show your support.
