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
Thank you, everyone!
— The e.Librarian.
