The Counter-Currents Summer Fundraiser
Matching Grant Update & New Incentives to Give
Posted By Greg Johnson On October 29, 2012 @ 1:57 am In news item | Comments Disabled
A reader asks why our Summer Fundraiser ends on Halloween, rather than on the Autumnal Equinox. Aside from the pragmatic reason that Halloween gives us more time to reach our goal, Hugh MacDonald points out  that in Celtic pagan rites, October 31st is the end of the season of light/summer/the harvest. These Celtic rites were later fused with the rites of Roman festivals of Pomona, Lemuria, and Parentalia, and the Christian rites of the evening before All Soul’s Day to create our modern Halloween. So ending our fundraiser on Halloween is not only practical it is also traditional. We hope it is also fun.
Since our last update, we have received 6 donations totaling $1,880, which will be matched for a total of $3,760. Our new grand total is $31,895. We thank you all for your generous support!
This leaves $4,045 left of our $10,000 matching grant. That seems like a lot to raise in three days, but we raised a similar amount near the end of our last Summer Fundraiser. So now is the time for a few $1,000 donors to step forward and save the day. So please give generously, because time is of the essence.
We also have some special incentives to give at various levels:
These incentives expire with our matching grant on October 31 (but other incentives for monthly donations, which are spelled out on our Donate  page, will remain in effect).
You can make two different types of donations:
Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have added several new levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donate  page for more information.
We can also customize the amount of a monthly donation. There are, moreover, other ways to make monthly donations besides Paypal, although it is the most convenient. For more details, contact Mike Polignano at: [email protected] 
There are several ways to make one-time donations:
It is coming down to the wire. Please give generously!
Thank you for your readership and support.
