Three time per year I pester you during my iSteve fundraising drives. Granted, in recent years, you can get iSteve content in other venues, such as Fox News primetime. But for the real stuff you have come here.

I’d like to be a normal pundit who gets paid for all the advertising I help sell and also gets paid a lot of money for giving speeches and the like, but that’s not going to happen. This is partly for reasons of intellectual censorship and mob violence used against groups that might invite me, of course.

But, to be honest, I’m likely never going to appeal to any kind of huge audience. My brain just doesn’t flow in the correct grooves.

So, I come to you, the few, the perceptive, hat in hand for contributions.

April is one of the three months of the year (along with December and August) when I hassle you for donations. I sometimes find myself discouraged, but then my loyal readers chip in with cash in its manifold forms, which I find highly encouraging. Say not the struggle nought availeth.

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 — 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 ( — 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)

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.

    Steve, the Current Year is your Comstock Lode.

  2. Oddly enough, these graphs — showing the impact of cellphone availability on price fluctuations at Indian fish markets — made me think of this website. The introduction of cellphones harmonized the price of fish in Indian villages. Social media seems to have had the opposite effect on the political conversation.

    One could reverse those graphs to illustrate the breakdown of the Narrative and the drowning out of the Megaphone. Overall, that’s been a very good thing. This site, and Steve Sailer in particular, has played a big part in all that.

  3. Consider getting on Patreon.

    Neither I nor the Unz Review have been banned from there yet, so you might have a chance there.

  4. Speaking of Right Stuff:

    There is a conspiracy theory going around, probably put out by the CIA and/or Cass Sunstein, that Steve Sailer doesn’t really write a blog, that this whole thing is a hoax.

    If you look carefully at the photos of Steve that appear here during the fundraisers, you can see that the shadows go in different directions. Furthermore, there is no way a man like that could survive the Van Allen radiation belt.

    Probably the best evidence that iSteve is a hoax is the sheer volume of work and the number of quality posts that appear 24/7. It is humanly impossible.

  5. If I had any money to use beyond basics, I would give you some for your prolific output. You are certainly one of the internet’s article-writing machines. The fact that PayPal is thwarting your industrious efforts bothers me. I always liked them until they decided to take their customer service overseas and until they instituted some kind of lopsided, Puritanical purge of former users for non-business-related reasons. I don’t want to hear any more lectures from double-standard leftists about lunch counters, accommodations and privilege.

  6. Steve your Bitcoin links aren’t working. Can you fix or otherwise set up a new wallet? The Abra app is pretty hip these days for Bitcoin…suppose I could pay bitcoin through vdare…

    FYI, Discover will block any payments to VDARE for anyone planning on donating that way.

    Steve should appear as a guest on TDS for — that would help prove his existence.

    this whole thing is a hoax.

    Surely the next installment in Unz’s ‘American Pravda’ series.

  11. anon[993] • Disclaimer says:

    yes, TDS has had several excellent guests lately

    Ingrid Carlqvist, Morgoth’s Review, etc

  12. anon[993] • Disclaimer says:

    we really need our own Patreon-like platform and also a small advertising network

    I think direct bank account transfers will be the only digital recourse eventually. Worst case it will devolve into checks and money orders through the mail.

    Even if a right wing billionare comes up with sonething useful, it will only be a matter of time before female/gay/woke C-suite people take over and ruin it.
