spiked needs your help.

As many of you will know, we are dedicated to raising the horizons of humanity. But in order to do so, we need to raise money, too.

We need £40,000 to continue producing our high-quality, low-BS daily magazine over the next year. So we’re asking our readers – the one group of people we can depend upon – to make regular donations.

spiked is different to most other magazines, which I’m sure is why many of you read it.

We’re different in that we wage a daily war of words against misanthropy, luddism, illiberalism and irrationalism. And when we say we defend free speech, we really mean it.

We’re also different in that, unlike other publications, we don’t have a sugar daddy or a wealthy benefactor or a big fat advertising revenue. We rely on YOU, our loyal and supportive readers, to make donations.

We’re the online magazine with the big mouth and the small budget – long on ideas but short on cash. We’re both politically and financially independent… but where the first of these is a positive, the second is very often a pain.

In contributing to our £40,000 target, you’ll be helping to keep spiked alive and kicking (against the pricks). We particularly need your support so that we can expand our investigative journalism and international coverage.

Regular donations are best; they provide us with a steady income that allows us to think big and ambitious. Click here to make monthly donations.

One-off donations will also be warmly welcomed, and can be given here.

Please give as much as you can afford – or more – today.
