Print and Mail Donation

Since September 11, we have defined our mission more sharply. Voices of Peace, a special section born from the need to formulate our voices of nonviolence and social justice, is now a regular feature. We have expanded in many significant ways from the little 'zine that debuted almost three years ago. Our visits have doubled in the last year. Our costs have also increased one-hundred percent.

We are an ecumenical, grass roots, non-profit, online only, Northwest journal and reader of arts & letters, ecology, and peace and social justice. We chose to be an online only magazine to save costs of printing and distribution. We are funded exclusively by our supporters -- we have no corporate funding nor any advertising. What you see is what you get. With a few staff members and a network of volunteers, we have accomplished a miracle on a shoestring. But we can't keep publishing this magazine without your help.

We gratefully acknowledge Lois Barton, Stan Thompson, Patrick Morris, Mia Gray, Harrick Hudson, Connie Brown, Mary Milman, Sylvia Hart and others for their generous gifts and support. Join them and make a gift to West By today!

We are in the long process of applying for our own 501(c)(3) IRS non-profit status. Meanwhile, we ask readers who want to support our work to please consider making a donation. Even small donations are great. Every dollar makes a difference! Really. We are grateful for your interest and support.

A Matching, Friendly Challenge

West By has a special friend who has pledged to match every first hundred dollars raised per month with an other hundred dollars. Please help us carry on our outreach here in the Northwest and the world. Many modest gifts can add up fast with matching gifts. If you support the kind of work we do, please make a contribution to West By Please be as generous as possible. Thank you.
