[JURIST announcement] WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP. Our spring fund drive ends tomorrow! Our annual goal is $30,000, and as of this posting we have just about hit the 25% mark. Your response has been phenomenal, but another $1,500 means we'll be 30% funded for the coming year. . .another $2,500 and we'll be 33% funded. . .and with another 7 donors, we will go over the century mark in the number of people who have contributed. Help make it happen!
As previously mentioned, due to general economic circumstances completely outside of our control, we are anticipating a significant reduction in funding (meaning several tens of thousands of dollars) from our primary benefactors for our next fiscal year. If not offset, this reduction has the potential to directly affect JURIST's ability to maintain its current operations. This fund drive is one of the efforts that we've recently launched to try to make up the shortfall.
Please consider donating to JURIST. Even if you are not in a position to give much, please keep in mind that small donations - $25, or even $10 - can go a long way. One of JURIST's strengths is in the number of people it touches every day, from readers to staff to alumni. If everyone of those people could give just a small amount, JURIST would never have to worry about funding again. We know that not everyone is in a position to give, but if you can, even a small amount can make a big difference. For those of you that are able to give more, please know that JURIST will recognize all donors that give $100 or more on its website at jurist.org/supportjurist/honorroll.php.
Thank you - we greatly appreciate your support!
