We Have a Great Story to Tell -- And You Are Involved

The last year has been record-breaking for AlterNet and readers like you are a big part of the reason. The number of overall visits to AlterNet over the past 12 months was 97.6 million -- a 31 percent increase over the previous year. 


AlterNet has averaged more than 6 million unique visitors coming to the site each month. This huge reach puts us in competition with the LA Times and ahead of sites like National Geographic, The Atlantic and AARP. We’re ranked by Quantcast as one of the top 400 web sites in the entire country. 

As one of our readers you are a big part of our success because we depend on you to spread the word. 

For journalism to be effective, the content has to be of high quality. And it has to reach a lot of people. There are lots of web sites with good, earnest content, but without the audience. And there are a lot of web sites with big audiences but with crass commercialism or bottom feeder content.

Thanks to your help, AlterNet is able to do both -- produce great material AND get tons of readers -- making us quite unique among non-profit, progressive websites. 

We need your help to keep being successful because, as a small-sized, non-profit, we are punching way above our weight class.  Contributions -- big and small -- from readers makes a huge difference.

Halfway to our goal, we need to raise $20k more dollars by June 3rd to make our budget. Just a small contribution from many of you, will put us over the top. Can you spare $5 or more?

Really, it would help

So do we.

The past year has been the most arduous of our lives. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to be catastrophic not only to our health - mental and physical - but also to the stability of millions of people. For all of us independent news organizations, it’s no exception.

We need your support in this difficult time. Every reader contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference in allowing our newsroom to bring you the stories that matter, at a time when being informed is more important than ever. Invest with us.
