Special Donation Drive:
today we ask you to help the Rudolf Steiner Archive, the host of this site. We
survive on small donations averaging about $13 and a yearly grant.
Only a tiny portion of our 30,000+ daily readers donate. If everyone
reading this right now gave $3, our fundraising would be done within
an hour. That's right, the price of a cup of coffee is all we need.
We're a very small not-for-profit company with costs of a very large
website: bandwidth, servers, and equipment. The Rudolf Steiner
Archive is something special. It is like a public library where
we can all go to learn and grow. If the Rudolf Steiner Archive
is useful to you, please take one minute to keep it online and serving
