You still have time: Let's move that bar!

The 2017 Webathon is near its official end, and this is the final call to make your donation and be counted. If you've already made your Webathon gift, thank you! Your decision to support NCR means a lot.

This webathon is unique in a couple of ways. First, it started in June, which is later than usual. Second, we changed from a monetary goal to a "people" goal. As you may know, we have not yet reached this goal of 2,000 supporters, but despite that we are pleased with the response and the continuing steady progress we see.

We understand the timing of this Webathon may have coincided with summer vacations when people spend less time online. So, although the Webathon will officially be ending soon, the opportunity to give this summer will remain. If you haven't done so, please take a moment to make a donation. Your gift supports not only the continuing operation of NCR, it supports the principle of an independent, reader-supported publication. Help us move the bar, and donate today.

This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.
