15 Bytes Fundraiser

it’s a brand new look!

(but this having to a run a fundraiser every six months, that’s been around for a while)

After 15 years it was time for a new look. No heavy plastic surgery or anything. Just a makeover, to clean things up a bit,  increase the size of the text (because, ahem, as we age some of us are finding it harder to read – and holding a laptop at arms length gets tiring pretty quick), make the mag mobile-friendly, that kind of thing.

 

WHAT WE NEED FROM OUR READERS
HELP US RAISE $6,500.
That’s what we need from our readers to keep on going for another six months.

That’s the bare minimum.

What else?

If we can raise a total of $8,000, we’ll throw in The 1-5-B

That’s the 15 Bytes podcast, which launched as a pilot program last fall — we’ll be able to publish it for the next six months.

Get us to $10,000

and we can pay our minions laboring away in the dusty archives to integrate all the content from 15 years of publishing into our new format (sure it’s not very sexy, hardly something to send goosebumps up your spine, but it needs to get done – and if we can get to that goal our editor, Shawn Rossiter, has agreed to submit to a makeover of his own: we’re thinking he’d look good in a nice shade of purple eye shadow; and maybe some glitter)

Since beginning our fundraiser : We’ve raised $5323.22




We have until May 15!

What is 15 Bytes?
In 2001, we started 15 Bytes as a community-based magazine about the arts in Utah: produced by members of our local community, about our local community, benefiting our local community.

It’s an open forum. An exploration of the vitality of Utah’s art scene. And it has lasted and continued to thrive because it has been a community effort.

Without financial support from individuals in the community we would never have made it over the past 15 years.

Where does my money go?
In addition to dozens of volunteers who help make this magazine possible, 15 Bytes has six part-time staffers who help make it happen every month. Your donation goes directly to pay these staff members as well as writers, photographers and videographers who provide content to 15 Bytes.

We need your help to keep going another 6 months.
