Dear truth-seekers,

Four years ago this week, we launched this campaign to fight off legal threats, SLAPP lawsuits, and a takeover attempt by hostile shareholders. We thought we’d have good news in time for this anniversary, but that is unfortunately not the case. 

Although every major court ruling has been in our favor so far, the point of these lawsuits has been — always — to bleed Snopes dry. Now, on the verge of trial, the years of constant legal battles have your favorite fact-checkers in need of rescue.

That’s why we’re launching one more campaign to Save Our Snopes. Will you help us?


Please note that any amounts sent to through or otherwise are purely a contribution, and this is not an offer to purchase securities or any other interest in (or its parent company). All contributions are non-refundable, and you will own no equity, debt, or other interest in (or its parent company) as a result of your contribution. Since (and its parent company) is not a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, contributions are not tax-deductible as a charitable contribution but will be allocated in their entirety to operating expenses, legal fees, and the continuation of our overall mission to fight misinformation.
