The 2020 Haiku Foundation Fundraiser Concludes

organizationThe Haiku Foundation Fundraiser has come to an end for another year, and all of us here want to thank our many contributors for their generous and considerate donations to the cause. 2020 has been a most trying year for all of us on many levels, and The Haiku Foundation has tried to remain a constant and steadying force, offering a refuge against the strangeness and uncertainty that prevails without. Your generosity suggests to us that we have succeeded in providing our audience with some of the sustenance necessary to face the days and months ahead with equanimity.

Beginning in a few hours, The Haiku Foundation will go offline for a couple days to implement our new web design. When we return we hope you will find the new design simpler to navigate, better organized, more accommodating to mobile devices, and more aesthetically pleasing. Our original site became public in 2009, and we have accumulated many resources since then — the new design integrates them in an organized fashion, rather than simply aggregating them as was necessary on the fly. We look forward to your feedback once we return as we strive to make this your favored haiku resource on the web.

Our need to fund ourselves will continued, of course, even though our Fundraiser period has come to an end. To that end we will continue to offer our book incentive: any of the volumes below for a donation of $50 or more, and any 6 for $250 (please specify which you’re ordering — PayPal doesn’t seem to be including that information to us). Thank you for helping to keep The Haiku Foundation on a sound financial footing into a bright new 2021!

  1. I donated $50 to the fundraiser. Didn’t know at the time that buttons weren’t telling which book I wanted and that II was supposed specify the book I wanted.

    I donated via the “Montage” button and would like to receive my incentive copy.
