LP Monday Message: Building in jeopardy

November 21, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I am serious when I tell you the LNC is on the verge of pulling the plug on the office we're looking at.

I hope to raise $30,000 more as soon as possible, just to help convince the rest of the LNC it is worth going forward.

I hope 100 of you will donate another $300 each as soon as possible.

Update: 54 donors yesterday - please help!

Dear Libertarian Party supporter,

Yesterday, 54 people contributed $4,685.00 online for the office building townhouse. That's almost $100 each.

Please go to our building fund page and make a generous donation. Please donate $1,000 if you can. $100 would be helpful as well.

So far we've raised $157,859 in donations and pledges toward buying an office building townhouse in Old Town Alexandria near DC.

Urgent help needed for new LPHQ building

Dear Libertarian Party supporter,

I need your help reaching a fundraising milestone to keep our hopes for purchasing a building alive.

As I mentioned in a previous message, the lease on our national Libertarian Party headquarters is up at the end of February 2012, and the landlord has indicated they'll be raising the rates 10% to almost $140,000 per year.

Libertarians promote justice for all

Cato Institute launches

from the Cato Institute:

Libertarianism is more than a set of policies about education, health care, defense, and trade. Behind those, providing their foundation, are ideas and history, the writings and actions of great men and women who have argued and fought for liberty. To help better express and discuss those ideas, the Cato Institute is pleased to announce the launch of
