"Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, April 4-8 2019"

Thanks for Your Support!

Good news, everybody: we did it! The April membership drive has come to an end, and together we surpassed our fundraising goal of US$130,000. In fact, 9966 donors from 86 countries helped us raise a grand total of US$245,655.00. This is our most successful membership drive ever, and we are stunned and grateful for your support. Thank you so much!

These funds will play a vital role in supporting the OTW and all its projects—Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, Transformative Works and Cultures, and AO3—allowing us to continue our mission to preserve fanworks, fan culture and fan history. Your support is enormously important, and we are so grateful to every person who donated, signal boosted, and cheered us on. You’re the best!

If you missed the drive but would still like to contribute, we accept donations year-round.
