The Editors invite you to join the Friends of Raritan, an organization of donors determined to help sustain the magazine’s commitment to wide-ranging curiosity, aesthetic pleasure, and sustained reflection.

Amid tightening university budgets, the Friends of Raritan allow us to sustain and enhance the magazine’s unique presence in contemporary intellectual life. These funds have enabled us to redesign Raritan’s website, expand our subscription base through targeted promotional efforts, and sponsor readings by Raritan writers. Contributions also allow us to maintain the magazine’s material excellence with high-quality papers, arresting illustrations, photo essays, and fine color art. With your help, Raritan will continue to expand its reach for probing writers and discerning readers—the lifeblood of our magazine.

We hope you will consider becoming a member of the Friends of Raritan, at whatever level seems appropriate. As an added promotion, if you join at the $100 level or higher, you will receive a complimentary one-­year subscription to the magazine.

We remain grateful for your support and your interest.
