Today is the last day for 2009 to make a tax-deductible donation to Arthur Magazine

Arthur Magazine is dependent on advertising sales, merchandise sales and donations to fund its free, “homegrown counterculture” mission without compromising its independence.

In 2009, Arthur has been unable to publish a print edition due to the ongoing financial disaster, which has severely impacted advertising and merchandise sales. With our income thus depleted, we’ve moved our energy into online activity, which is less costly but alas, has (as yet) failed to pay for itself.

Although our online readership and advertising sales have climbed steadily over the last 10 months, we remain partly dependent on donations from our readers. The good news here is that because Arthur is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization, all contributions, of any amount, by individuals or organizations to Fractured Atlas in behalf of Arthur are tax-deductible.

If you have appreciated Arthur Magazine’s work in 2009, and want to see us continue on our mission into 2010, please consider making a donation. If you do it today, you will be able to claim it on your taxes in April.

Thank you,

The Arthur Magazine Gang
