Contingent is supported solely by its readers, not by any university or think tank. We think that makes it possible for us to do this magazine right.

Our current monthly budget is about $1,600. We bring in about $1,500 a month from 160-odd recurring donors, which is supplemented by a cash reserve left over from our initial fundraiser. We use that money for accounting and donor management software and other infrastructural costs, paying our writers and editorial staff, and grant applications.

You can use the form below to give us a recurring donation via credit card, PayPal, or direct bank transfer. This will give you access to member perks, like our podcast. (If you’d prefer to make a one-time donation for now, you can do so here.)

We also welcome the old-fashioned check; just make it out to Contingent, Inc., and send it to PO Box 587, Bowling Green, KY, zip code 42102.
