The Rumpus store sales accounts for over 90% of the funds we currently use to cover our basic operating costs and keep The Rumpus running without a paywall. This includes sales of merchandise and (especially!) our ongoing subscription programs: Letters in the Mail, Letters for Kids, The Rumpus Book Club, and The Rumpus Poetry Book Club. In 2022 we launched a Rumpus Membership program with special perks for supporters. Each of these programs along with tax-deductible donations made to The Rumpus through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, helps keep us going and brings us closer to sustainability.
We’re currently running an end of the year Member Drive. Help us get to 600 Rumpus Members before Dec. 31 and get some cool perks for yourself. Gift subscriptions also available and will help us reach our goal. We’re halfway there with 303 Members to go! Join TODAY!
