Donate to Shakesville

This strictly-moderated and independent space is run on donations rather than corporate advertising in order to keep the space as safe as possible. At Shakesville, you will find no content-generated advertising (which frequently yields ironic results, such as ads for diet plans on fat acceptance threads), and no ads featuring sexualized imagery of women, disembodied body parts, marginalizing language or imagery, potentially triggering images of animal abuse, or endorsement of companies that support conservative causes and/or subvert workers' rights.

Managing Shakesville as a safe space requires, in addition to the time of our volunteer mods, my full-time commitment, and my salary is drawn exclusively from donations. I do not raise funds by required subscription, i.e. locking content behind a pay wall, as I want Shakesville to be as accessible as possible irrespective of one's financial situation.

I cannot afford to do this full-time for free, but, even if I could, fundraising is also one of the most feminist acts I do here. I ask to be paid for my work because progressive feminist advocacy has value.

You can donate once by clicking the "Make a Donation" button above or in the righthand sidebar, or you can set up a monthly subscription using the "Subscribe" button in the sidebar, which has a dropdown menu of subscription options. There are even more options below.

If you value the content and/or community in this space, can afford it, and want to see Shakesville continue to flourish, please consider setting up a subscription or making a one-time contribution.

My profound thanks for your support.
