While it’s true that $40,000 is a lot of money, we know the number of you Bitch supporters is in the hundreds of thousands. And we’re asking each of you who values independent, nonprofit media and intelligent feminist cultural analysis to contribute what you can to ensure that Bitch thrives. And while we can’t say what form Bitch will take in the future (our direction will depend, in part, on your feedback), we can say that we’ve been hard at work to find an innovative publishing model that will allow us to maintain the spirit and integrity of Bitch while also reflecting the changing world around us.
As a nonprofit, reader-funded media organization, our fate really is—and always will be—in your hands. We don’t need a parent company. We just need you!
Donations can currently be made through the Bitch website and they’re also trying to find a way to incorporate Paypal into the site. (I will post an update in the comments here if this comes to fruition.) There is more on how to help on the Bitch website and, if you happen to partake in Facebook, there’s also a group dedicated to helping spread the word.
