September 2004 Fund Drive
This fund drive has now closed! If you're looking to support Strange Horizons, please see our main donate page.
Thanks for your support! The September 2004 fund drive has successfully concluded, but you can still donate.
Since September of 2000, Strange Horizons has been bringing you some of the most exciting and vibrant voices in speculative fiction. We've gained a reputation for being friendly to new writers, for showcasing diversity and innovation in speculative fiction, and for producing an excellent and exciting publication every week. We're passionate about what we do—so passionate about it that our thirty-five staff members are willing to work for free—but we need your help in order to keep doing it.
Strange Horizons has always depended on donations from our readers to keep our publication going. Our staff doesn't get paid, but our contributors do, and paying professional rates for high-quality fiction, poetry, art, and non-fiction takes a lot of resources. We're hoping to raise $2500 this month, which is about one-sixth of our annual budget, and we'd love for you to be a part of that.
Everyone who donates during the month of September, no matter how big or small the donation, will be entered in a drawing for one of our fabulous fund drive prizes. If you donate $25 or more, though, you can become a Strange Horizons reader-member, which entitles you to a glossy illustrated collectible membership card and a discount on the Strange Horizons annual anthologies. (Different gift packages are available at different donation levels—see our membership page for full details about our membership levels.) Becoming a Strange Horizons member costs less than subscribing to most print magazines, and you'll have the added benefit of knowing that you're helping to sustain one of the most exciting publications in the field. And since we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation to Strange Horizons is tax-deductible!
