Hello, and thank you for sup…
Hello, and thank you for supporting IDEA,

IDEA's "No Spectators" fundraising campaign ends today. And the first thing I want to communicate is gratitude. We’ve received a donation or pledge from more than 125 people raising over $35,200. Thank you.

IDEA’s work will continue to go on, just like your own, because when you’re not a spectator you keep finding new ways to move what needs to move forward.

In wrapping the campaign, we want to make one final push today and also acknowledge that we did not meet our larger goal. And we feel like you deserve to know, in broad terms, what that means. For now, no big changes. But we are facing a sizable hole in our budget come March that staff is working hard to fill from grants, value-aligned corporate support, and more gifts and pledges as they can come in. We aren’t desperate - if anything we’re digging in, shoring up, and resolved to find ways to continue to will the dreams, work, and connections of IDEA forward.

We know you’re giving all you can and that we’ve asked as much and in as many ways as we can conjure, hopefully without exhausting you. We know you are the choir. You are the people who see the importance of making connections, of weaving networks, of finding new narratives and new ways to organize, and we know that you are IDEA.

Thank you. Thanks for organizing. Thanks for risking. Thanks for trusting. Thanks for storytelling and sharing. Thanks for sending us money and thanks for asking others.

Few things powerful happen in the world without those ingredients,
