Patriot Post Revenue and Expenses
From our humble beginnings on the Web in 1996, The Patriot Post is now a primary touchstone of Liberty for millions of Americans. Thousands of grassroots leaders across the nation repost our content on their organizational blogs, social networking sites and in print publications. Educators use our content for classroom instruction. American military personnel depend on our digest content as a primary source of news, policy and opinion.
Why do we request your support? Because there is no more effective and cost efficient method to promote the timeless message of Liberty to millions of Americans across our great nation, and to keep the flame of Liberty burning bright! We do not ask support from our Armed Forces readers, students, those in the mission field and Patriots of any age with limited resources.
Why do we run three annual funding campaigns? The short answer is, I am not willing to risk our critical staff, mission and operation budgets on one large year-end campaign. Thus, we run two short "funding gap" bridge campaigns -- Patriots’ Day and Independence Day -- but raise almost 70 percent of our revenue from the yearend campaign. These campaigns are critical to keeping us funded throughout the year.
Publishing, like freedom, is not free. We employ editorial and technical teams, 25 part-time feature and content contributors who are experts in their fields, and an indispensable research and analysis team. In addition, our Internet publishing efforts require a sizable investment beyond the human one; this includes robust and powerful hardware, custom software, technology services, office space, installations, maintenance and more. We also incur substantial legal, accounting and insurance costs.
Yet, our mission and operations budget is a small fraction of the expenses of other influential conservative organizations, primarily because our dedicated staff members are motivated by mission and not deterred by modest wages.
We are not sustained by any political, special interest or parent organization, nor do we accept any third-party online or e-mail advertising. Our mission and operations budgets are funded by -- and depend entirely upon -- the voluntary financial support of American Patriots like YOU!
