Thanks to everybody who chipped in so far for my first 2020 fundraiser.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute to me, iSteve:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me:

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: [Warning: Does this still work?] You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

If Coinbase isn’t working, what other Bitcoin intermediaries would you recommend? My goal is to not get audited by the IRS. The SPLC has been out to get me via the IRS for about 15 years, so I am fastidious about paying my taxes. For several years, Coinbase instantly transformed any Bitcoin donations into cash so I didn’t have to worry about the cost basis of capital gains on Bitcoin, but instead just reported income.

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

  1. @Steve+Sailer in light of recent events re: cancellations, financial deplatforming, etc. is there a decent archive of all of your work online somewhere? Obviously people use stuff like archive.today/Wayback to archive individual articles but e.g. some of your older stuff back on isteve.blogspot is missing and what not. Would be nice to have a zip file of it all in case the worse happens…

    OT

    I just heard an ad on The radio for one of Kris Kobach’s competitors…they used the words White Nationalist at least 20 times including accusing someone on his campaign of “posting inline messages at a white nationalist” website.

  5. From what I’ve heard, coinbase is a bad place to keep you bitcoin wallet. I’m surprised you’re still using paypal. I believe both coinbase and paypal have ties to the ADL (paypal for sure). They will cancel you on a whim.

  6. You are still young enough. I have to ask. When are you going to leave California and go to Texas? And after you go, are you going to set up shop with this blog in Texas. I’m sure you’ve calculated how much less fund raising you’d have to do in a state with lower taxes and fees.

    For example, I see that in Texas trash collection is about $15 a month. Here in Oakland I pay $110 a month.

    Deep-genome analyses conducted by Stanford Medicine researchers and their collaborators have settled a long-brewing controversy about whether ancient Polynesians and Native Americans had contact.

  8. Hi Steve,

    There’s a New Yorker article about the history and demise of Slate Star Codex, and it mentions you as a besmircher of the SSC comments boards.

    Slate Star Codex and Silicon Valley’s War Against the Media
    How a controversial rationalist blogger became a mascot and martyr in a struggle against the New York Times.

    https://www.newyorker.com/culture/annals-of-inquiry/slate-star-codex-and-silicon-valleys-war-against-the-media

    QUOTE: These conversations, about race and genetic or biological differences between the sexes, have rightfully drawn criticism from outsiders. Rationalists usually point out that these debates represent a tiny fraction of the community’s total activity, and that they are overrepresented in the comments section of S.C.C. by a small but loud and persistent cohort—one that includes, for example, Steve Sailer, a peddler of “scientific racism.”

    Rightfully! So there! Q.E.f’ing D. !

    When are you going to leave California and go to Texas?

    Steve spent four years in Texas. He must know something.

    C’mon, suggest someplace attractive… Rapid City, the Yellowstone valley, Pigeon Forge…

    But Steve likes the sea. That gets expensive. Western Michigan? You still get the maritime sunsets.

    For example, I see that in Texas trash collection is about $15 a month. Here in Oakland I pay $110 a month.

    Why don’t you move to Texas? And take your trash with you. Jeez, Oaklanders telling Valley Guys to move.

    BTW, are you the same fellow who posted as “Pat Boyle” until recently? Or another PB?

    Saw this over on Breitbart

    Lemon said, “What is happening? Have you seen the videos of the people in the stores who are like ‘Get away from me! You’re threatening me! I don’t have to wear a mask!’ I want to play all of them. Not say anything and just let people see themselves. Just wear a mask. You got to wear a shirt. You got to wear shoes. You can’t go without pants, or I mean, come on. What’s wrong with people?”

    Just wanted to say good for Don. You let these people get away with no mask now, and next thing you know they will be rubbing their hand on their junk and shoving it in peoples faces.

  11. What’s the best way to contribute anonymously? Cash through the mail seems extremely risky, especially considering that a certain amount of my mail has gone missing this year.

    Texas has 254 counties, but half the people live in just five or six of them. The state’s population distribution:

    Here is an example of border control that works– for vultures. The difference is said to result from different methods of carcass disposal. Incidentally, Portuguese bullfights do not kill the bull; they’re more like rodeos in drag.

    South Haven is pretty nice. In the summer.

    @anonwatcher

    Yes. I hope Mr. Sailer is at least taking prudent measures for regularly backing-up his work: Redundant copies of data, stored in discrete, secured locations. A practical system would be to maintain at least copy in the cloud, plus at least two portable drives, rotated between home and car at a minimum. A number of software options exist for streamlining and at least largely automating the continual updating and synchronization of all of the redundant instances of data. There are no doubt other readers here with far greater expertise than me who could advise better.
    (Remember: There are those who backup their data regularly, and those who, sooner or later, regret not having done so. And: If one loses critical data, no amount of expletives will recover it.)

    FUND-RAISING SUGGESTIONS
    – Make some of your writings available for purchase in hard-copy form, as I have seen others suggest
    – Offer extensive archives of your work in digital form, such as USB flash sticks, DVDs or even downloads.
    These could be customized with a slogan imprinted, as could other items…
    – iSteve Logo/slogan Merchandise such as face masks, coffee mugs, refrigerator magnets, mousepads, smartphone cases, stickers, T-shirts, hats, etc., also suggested by others.

    (The following are far more ambitious and risky and admittedly questionable until Wuhan/COVID virus blows over.)

    – Organize and Host iSteve’s Noticing Tours/ Getaways. Golf resorts, of course, come to mind first for venue choices.

    – Offer yourself for hire to speak-to and spend time with interested parties of sufficient means. For the right price, even just one such hiring could be quite rewarding financially. Obviously, thorough screening of prospective clients would be a must.

    What’s the best way to contribute anonymously?

    Use cash to buy (perhaps) an Amazon gift card. Mail it such that the card not detectable in the envelope. Cardboard works.

    Get a cashier’s check from your bank made out to Steve.

    @DCThrowback

    I donate the same way, and just assume he is notified or gets a consolidated payment. I wonder how much of a pain Steve’s taxes are, getting income from so many varied sources?
