Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, October 10–14, 2019

Thank You for Your Support!

Wow! The OTW’s October fundraising drive is over, and it was amazingly successful! We flew right past our goal of US$130,000, with US$247,098.69 donated by 8566 people from 82 countries. We are truly humbled by your generosity—THANK YOU!

As we’ve mentioned during the course of this drive, the OTW depends on the donations of its user base to fund every one of its activities. The Archive of Our Own is our most visible project, especially after its recent Hugo Award win, but every one of our projects is crucial to our goals. Your donations also go towards initiatives like our legal work, defending fans and fanworks against laws which threaten them, and our Open Doors project, rescuing fanworks from platforms and archives in danger of being lost.

We are a nonprofit and every cent that has been donated will go back into our projects. (In fact, you can read all about the way that we spend the money raised during our funding drives in our recent budget post.) Your generosity means that we can continue with the important work we’re doing and plan for even greater things in the future. Thank you!

We also accept donations year-round, so you can support the OTW whenever you’d like.
