Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, October 11–15, 2018

Thank You for Your Support!

As our October fundraising drive comes to a close, we at the OTW are yet again blown away by your support and enthusiasm. We began the drive with the goal of raising $130,000.00, and thanks to you, we’ve beaten that goal. With 7823 donors from 93 countries, we raised a total of $193,068.87. Thank you!

Your donations make a difference. They allow us to continue our work with Open Doors, Legal Advocacy, Fanlore, Transformative Works and Cultures, and of course AO3. We can’t tell you how grateful we are. And don’t forget, even though the drive is over, you can still support the OTW. We accept donations year-round!

Your Donations Help Us Grow!

As you may have noticed, Archive of Our Own recently upgraded its search engine. This change included a whole bunch of new highly requested features, and it wouldn’t have been possible without your donations!

One of the big highlights of this upgrade is the new easy-to-use exclusion filters. Don’t want any trace of angst in your fluff? No problem! Just select “Angst” from the list of Additional Tags to exclude. If you can’t find the tag you want to avoid in the provided lists, just type them into the “Other tags to exclude” field.

Want to get even more in-depth? There are some handy hidden search operators to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. (more…)
