RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $4200Goal: $6000

But we're not sure
Who's asking?
Our website offers a collection of literature and resources for people interested in the science of science communication. We also share toolkits for scientific reasoning, critical thinking, and skeptical inquiry.
—Nodes of Science[1]

Nodes of Science (NOS) is an "independent science outreach and communication project" that hopes to "encourage people’s natural curiosity for public science issues".[1] NOS operates websites nodesci.net (which operates as the main jumping-off point) and skeptiforum.org, as well as several social media groups and sub-websites.[2]


Keeping the Science. Removing the Fiction.
—SkeptiForum motto[3]

SkeptiForum's mission is to "promote respectful, evidence-based discussions".[4] SkeptiForum has useful resources on the following topics:

  • Good sources of information: Sources that are pro-science and pro-skepticism(link), sources "for finding and evaluating information"(link), science communication blogs/websites(link),
  • GMOs: Discussions include general GMO articles(link), Monsanto and glyphosate(link), pesticides in general(link)
  • Vaccines: A small list of vaccine resources(link)

As of October 2017, SkeptiForum was very inactive, at only ~20 posts in the past month.[3]
