This summer we reported how we finished our budget year ending June 30 in remarkably good shape considering the news we received over the holidays that we were losing our biggest source of income. But we also pointed out that making ends meet was about to get harder.
Indeed, after the first quarter of our new budget year that began July 1, fundraising is lagging slightly. So far, with 25% of the fiscal period behind us, we’ve raised 17% of what we need in gifts from individuals to reach our fundraising goal.
Ideally, we’d like to catch up and get back on pace to hit that target. We certainly don’t want to fall farther behind. So we could really use your help right now. We hope you value the work we do to make it possible for the people of Wisconsin to follow the money in state politics and our organizing and advocacy so much that you will send a tax-deductible gift to the Democracy Campaign today.
Benefit concert for the Democracy Campaign tonight in Mount Horeb
A grassroots citizen group in the southwest part of the state is doing its part and then some to keep the Democracy Campaign strong, coming up with the idea to hold a benefit concert with all proceeds going to WDC. The event is tonight in Mount Horeb. If you live in the area, we hope to see you there.
In a recent letter to the editor, one of the concert organizers explained why his group is stepping up to help.
