There are several ways you can support Speakeasy to grow and continue along our journey towards providing compelling content. Throughout the year, we will be running several spotlights drawing attention to issues we wish to feature and raise awareness of. From frontline workers and Black history to military veterans and the LGBTQ, Speakeasy strives to broaden our understanding of one another: of seeing our shared humanity.
It is our hope that in demonstrating a commitment to elevating and empowering others that you will see Speakeasy as a platform for positive change: intellectually, socially, emotionally (and comedically). It is our hope that this inaugural year will be a proof-of-concept for our vision and that, through our actions, we will demonstrate our commitment to fairness, charity, and justice. If we succeed, we ask that you stay with us on the road ahead and consider supporting our growth.
Specifically, any funding earmarked for Speakeasy will go towards paying our operating expenses as well as compensating our writing and editorial staff members. Some of us are still the stereotypically starving grad students.
Speakeasy will be collaborating, exclusively, with Patreon and Paypal for donations and financial support.
If you wish to be a monthly supporter of Speakeasy, please consider becoming a patron of ours. There will be three tiers of subscriptions offered with various perks. Rest assured, NONE of our content will be paywalled. However, as we begin to grow, we plan on rewarding early supporters with additional premium content.
You can also find the Patreon button on the right-side of our social media icon list atop every article
If you are more comfortable with a single, one-off, donation we encourage you to use our PayPal found below.
