Support Us

We may be screwed, but we’re together. With your help, we can all learn to get less-screwed.

An Arm and a Leg is a scrappy, independent production. Your contributions go a long way to helping us make the show.

Are you here to switch over from Patreon?
We’ve got detailed instructions right here.

Also: The good folks at Public Narrative serve as a fiscal sponsor, so your donation here is tax-deductible!

Let us show you how we appreciate your help

  • We’ll thank you in public (if you let us): We shout out new contributors at the end of every episode.
  • Give $5 a month or more (or a one-time gift of $50 or more): we’ll send a hand-written thank-you card.
  • Give $20 or more a month (or $200+ as a one-time gift): we’ll send some Arm and a Leg band-aids!

Or: Yep, Patreon is still an option. (They do take a bigger bite, though.)

We are also set up on a system called Patreon, which supports affordable, monthly contributions.

Honestly, we’d love it if you made a tax-deductible contribution instead. The folks at Public Narrative are a leaner operation— they’re a non-profit, so they’re not, you know, trying to make a buck on this— so more of your money actually goes to support the show.

But if you just like Patreon— and honestly, we think they’re pretty nice — Patreon totally still works.

We are grateful for a $1,000 grant from the Chicago AWESOME Foundation.

The Awesome Foundation is “a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1000 at a time.”

Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, $1000 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter’s “trustees” and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.

The Chicago chapter of the AWESOME Foundation made the very first donation to support An Arm and a Leg, kick-starting our launch. We will never forget it.
