Give to Palladium Annual Fund this Giving Tuesday
Palladium Magazine has had an excellent year. Since 2018, we’ve explored the future of governance and society through international journalism, long-form analysis, and social philosophy. In 2022, this meant sending correspondents to conflict zones across the globe, pushing the envelope of nuclear aesthetics, and even launching a new institution to help guide U.S. decision makers in their understanding of China.
We can not do what we do without the support of our members. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, it is the generosity of our readers that enables our work. And as this year comes to a close, we need your support for an even stronger 2023.
Palladium Annual Fund
We have a goal to raise $300,000 dollars by December 31st, 2022. The Palladium Annual Fund supplements the regular support of members. Together, the Annual Fund and regular member contributions sustain Palladium’s work and enable us to do even more ambitious research, reporting, and writing projects.
No contribution is too small to count—an anonymous Palladium donor has agreed to match every contribution we receive up to our $300,000 goal. All Annual Fund donors will receive a special token of our appreciation.
You can pay via card, bank transfer, or Apple Pay here. All donations received before December 31st qualify for a tax-deduction in 2022. We also accept cryptocurrency and stock, and pay no capital gains taxes on the full value of a contribution, which can sometimes be advantageous from a tax perspective. You can even Venmo us @palladiummag.
Donations toward the Annual Fund at or above $600 will automatically qualify you for equivalent membership benefits, no matter how you donate.
Among those of you who have donated so far, we are especially thankful for those who have donated considerably more than our standard membership tiers. Please get in touch with us if you would like to make Palladium a part of your philanthropy, give through a donor advised fund, or to discuss a bequest or strategic gift.
