A hearty “06880” thank you to all who donated to this year’s “pledge drive.” Your support of our online community is greatly appreciated.
I hate to ask for funds. But the NPR/PBS model is the only way I can continue to tell stories about the people, places and past of this town; to bring you news and photos, and to do all the back-end stuff no one ever sees but that takes all of my time, 24/7/365.
Someone congratulated me this weekend on 13 years of “06880” — then said, “Sorry I missed your contribution day. I’ll send a check next year.”
Great news! Your money is good any time!
You can donate by PayPal or credit card: click here. It’s easy, safe — and you don’t even need a PayPal account.
Checks can be mailed to “06880”: PO Box 744, Westport, CT 06881.
I’m also on Venmo: @blog06880

If you already donated: thanks again.
If you forgot thanks in advance!
If you donate anonymously with cash, (my choice) 100% of your contribution goes to Dan. If you write a check, Dan must report it to the IRS as income which likely dilutes the net benefit of your contribution to 06880. It’s important not only to contribute to 06880 but also to do it in a way that reflects your core values. In summation: If you want to keep Westport alive, CONTRIBUTE!!!
Tax Evasion ≠ Core Values
Eric, I report ALL income to the IRS! I am scrupulous about paying my fair share!
Dan, I have no doubt that in any situation, IRS related or otherwise, that you do the right thing. You’ve done it all your life no way you’d stop now. Congratulations on what I’m sure is a groundswell of support. In the words of the ‘72 Nixon re-election campaign: “Now more than ever!!!” We need 006880!!!
Happy to contribute to a delightful and insightful daily blog.
