This summer will mark the 4 year anniversary of It’s Going Down’s launch in 2015. While our listeners and readers have kept us afloat this long, by early 2019, IGD is at a crossroads. Either we triple the amount of people that donate monthly to this project by the end of the year, or by 2020, we will be forced to drastically scale back – or end – what we are doing, creating, and producing.

Right now, there are about 70 people who donate every month to It’s Going Down and for this we are grateful. Our goal is to triple this to at least 200 by the end of the year. We know we can make this goal due to the degree in which IGD has become a community resource and a clearinghouse of movement news and infrastructure – because people literally tell us this everyday. We also know that the audience of our podcast is also growing with each episode; we’re even streamed off of one of the largest radio stations in the Bay Area of California, KPFA.
We've totally re-organized our shop! Check out new shirts, sticker packs, zine packs, and more! IGD runs on donations and those who support us monthly. Go to our store to see how you can help us stick around for the long haul! https://t.co/0Hks1APK4A pic.twitter.com/gLtUoX9F9M

We know that if this were to be IGD’s last year, or if we were forced to seriously scale back the amount of content we produce, edit, promote, and record, then the movement as a whole would be at a loss. As hard as this is to imagine, if we continue to run into the red, then we physically will be left with no other choice. At this point in our project, we have to get to the point of growing, not constantly starting over.
There are three ways to help us:
SIGN UP TO DONATE MONTHLY: Help us reach our goal of 200 monthly supporters by the end of the year. Monthly donations can be as low as just $2 and the average monthly donation is $10-20. Click here to sign up to donate monthly.
We know the with the support of the tens of thousands of listeners and readers who use and interact with IGD weekly, we can reach our goal. We plan to be around for a long time and continue to grow and build beyond where we are now. Without our supporters backing us however, we won’t be able to get there.
Please, if you value the work what we do and the content, then stand behind us today.
