Now, more than ever.

The Moorfield Storey Institute put in its application for 501(c)3 tax-exempt status a year ago. We were told a few days ago that it will be granted. But, while waiting for the IRS to process the paperwork, we went through our start up capital. To put it mildly, we are currently in financial distress. Waiting a full year before we could ramp up fund raising hurt our bottom line very badly.

We need to raise about $10,000 to stay afloat. And the only way we can do that is with your support. Would you please consider making a donation today. You can click the "Donate Now" button under the photograph of Moorfield Storey, in the top right corner of this page. Any amount will help us avoid closing.

In the last year our Cobden Press published the first, complete collection of Lysander Spooner's essays on religion. We also published a new collection of essays on taxation, edited by Carl Watner, Gary Chartier's The Conscience of an Anarchist, and James Peron's Within Reason: Essays on Objectivism, Ayn Rand and Christianity.

We have published almost 40 columns at Huffington Post which have been read by hundreds of thousands, probably millions, of people. We are contributing a Hayekian perspective on the evolution of marriage for a new anthology edited by Sharon Presley. And we are working on several new books of our own. Of course, our book service, www.fr33minds.com, continues to be the ONLY libertarian source for steeply discounted books. Our prices beat those of Amazon, on average.

Without your help we are going to have to close.

For any donation of $100 or more we will send you a free copy of Capitalist at Large, in appreciation. For $500 or more we will send, Capitalist at Large, Liberty in a Globalized World, and Why Liberty. If you can donate $1000 or more we will send you all those titles, plus Within Reason, The Conscience of an Anarchist and Render Not. Larger donations will receive selections of DVDs as well.

We believe that when the economy recovers we can survive mostly on the income we earn through the sale of books. Until then we must rely on the kindness of friends. Donate via PayPal using the "donate now" button. To donate by phone call toll-free at 866-254-3701. Donations by check can be sent to:
