But they recently pulled funding for worthwhile organizations in order to focus money on the Democratic Party. We at FDL need to maintain our financial independence to continue what we do.

Cue the FDL Membership association – a brilliant idea conceived like many others at FDL: in our comments section. It allows us to continue to build our organization on donations from our supporters while putting us on steadier footing for our future. Since its inception, the membership association has revolutionized our work at FDL – we’ve become much more organized internally, and are churning out projects and ideas left and right.
