In a short email conversation with a long-time supporter, I was happy to read this:
a couple years ago you were really struggling with TAC. It appears it is now better than ever. Things going as good as they appear?
I wrote back in some broad strokes, but it struck me that this is also something I should share with you – every TAC member….as our stability and strength are extremely important to our stand for the Constitution and liberty.
Thank you for asking about how things are going with TAC too! I’m glad you noticed how things have changed on that end of things.
A few years ago, we were boom and bust (for lack of a better phrase). In short, we’d run out of money, on the verge of closing every 6-12 months. Then, I’d desperately beg people to help us out – and we’d get a big haul of donations that would last us then next round.
Looking back at it – it was pretty bad.
So, early 2015 – I decided I was done with that and focused on building our monthly membership program. And today, we’re almost there – just about to the point where our monthly donation program is covering all our expenses without having to ask for a single donation push. We’re not there yet – but pretty close.
And my thought process is that once we are, we’ll still do some big fundraisers, but instead of doing them out of desperation to keep TAC open, we’ll be doing them to expand.
The difference is huge.
In short – I cannot thank you enough – TAC memberships – whether they’re $2/month or $1000 for lifetime, or anywhere in between – are crucial. We absolutely couldn’t get the job done without your help!
