    Help Crosscut unlock $3,000

    Crosscut is nearing its goal for the fall membership drive. Our board of directors has offered to match every new donation this week up to $3,000. Will you help us?

    Crosscut’s board of directors will match the next $3,000 in member donations during what we hope is the final week of the fall membership drive. That means we need to raise just $3,000 this week from readers in order to unlock an additional $3,000 from our board.

    Click here to donate. We now accept Visa and Mastercard.

    If 20 of our readers could give $100 and 20 more could give $50, we’re there. 

    Remember, you can still win a Kindle Fire by renewing or becoming a member today.

    Many thanks to the more than 150 readers who have made generous contributions this month to keep Crosscut publishing.
