The Living New Deal Project needs your help to keep going.  Our goal is to raise $100,000 to cover our yearly expenses (data entry, website, events, newsletters, maps, etc.) and to keep expanding our activities.  The project is snowballing in terms of site submissions, volunteers around the country, and public recognition; and we have some important new initiatives, such as hand-held New Deal maps of New York, Washington, DC and San Francisco, a New Deal film archive and festival, and a National New Deal Preservation Conference.  We depend on hundreds of supporters to provide the wherewithal.

Thanks to the generosity of one of our board members, we have a grant that will double-match all contributions up to a total of $25,000 (=$75,000).  That means a contribution of $100 becomes $300!  Last year, our donors gave over $22,000, which yielded $66,000 for the Living New Deal budget (and we raised another $20,ooo from a university grant). For information on how to give, see our Donation Page.

Richard A Walker is the director of the Living New Deal.
