Today, OtherWords commentaries and cartoons are appearing in about 325 newspapers with at least 7 million readers. We couldn’t have achieved this foothold without support from people like you and a handful of generous foundations.

We aim to expand our reach in 2015 to at least 400 newspapers. Achieving this goal requires boosting our shoestring budget by at least $15,000. Can you help our columnists, cartoonist, and op-ed writers get featured where they’re most needed?

Please consider making a year-end tax-deductible contribution to support OtherWords or 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 newspaper editors across the nation.

You may make a monthly 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.
