The 90 years fund

The Morning Star is launching a special fundraising effort, and we need your help.


Next year marks 90 years since the Daily Worker, renamed the Morning Star in 1966, was first published.

We haven’t yet achieved socialism in Britain, so we must stick around for another 90 years.

We don’t have billionaire oligarch backers like much of Big Media. We rely solely on our readers and
our friends in the labour movement.

Contribute to the 90 years fund

We know you already do so much for us: by contributing to the Fighting Fund, advertising with us and buying the print or digital edition you ensure we can meet our everyday costs.

This year we need to raise additional funds for some critical expenditure to ensure the paper survives and thrives for the years to come.

Our survival

We need a new suite of computers and associated software to produce the newspaper every day.

The current equipment is more than 10 years old, creaking and at risk of catastrophic failure any day.

We also need to invest in broadband, telephony, email and IT.

Thriving future

Labour’s left turn under Jeremy Corbyn, coupled with the huge expansion in social media, provides a huge opportunity to reach new and younger readers.

We’ve made some progress, but our reporters need mobile video-making equipment and staff need resources to boost the impact and reach of our reporting in print, on our website and on Twitter, Facebook and so on.

We have an ambitious but appropriate target. We want to raise £90,000 over the next few months. So please dig as deep as you are able.
