All year long, OtherWords gives editors — at no cost — a steady stream of independent-minded commentaries to choose from for their op-ed pages. That’s how we do our share to ensure that as long as there are newspapers in print or a digital format, the national conversation will include a broad spectrum of well-argued opinions.
But we need your help to keep going.
This holiday season, will you help us amplify bold and outside-the-box voices?
Please make a year-end tax-deductible contribution to support OtherWords if you are able to do so. Even better, consider becoming a sustaining donor today. Whether you can spare $10 or $10,000, your tax-deductible gift will help guarantee our ability to deliver independent, newsroom-ready, and innovative ideas to editors across the nation.
You may make a monthly, quarterly, or one-time contribution on our website or mail a check payable to OtherWords at this address: Institute for Policy Studies; 1112 16th Street NW, Suite 600; Washington, DC 20036.
