Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, October 11–15, 2018

Thank You for Your Support!

As our October fundraising drive comes to a close, we at the OTW are yet again blown away by your support and enthusiasm. We began the drive with the goal of raising $130,000.00, and thanks to you, we’ve beaten that goal. With 7823 donors from 93 countries, we raised a total of $193,068.87. Thank you!

Your donations make a difference. They allow us to continue our work with Open Doors, Legal Advocacy, Fanlore, Transformative Works and Cultures, and of course AO3. We can’t tell you how grateful we are. And don’t forget, even though the drive is over, you can still support the OTW. We accept donations year-round!

Show some love for your favorite OTW projects with fun project logo keychains–so whether you’re a fan of AO3, OTW’s Legal Advocacy, Fanlore, Transformative Works and Cultures, or Open Doors, there’s something just for you! Or you can celebrate them all at once with an OTW sticker set, which includes a full set of logos to decorate your stuff.
