Thanks for coming! If you're here, it means that you're either interested in supporting Meaningful Money - or you accidentally clicked on the wrong link! If you're here to learn more about how you can support Meaningful Money, I thank you!

Meaningful Money exists because of the support of people like you. Unlike many personal finance blogs, I will not run ads on this site or related newsletter. This isn't simply because I think ads are gross. It's deeper than that. I believe the ad model is responsible for much of the decisiveness we see today. The ad model leads to clickbait, false information, and other tricks designed to steal attention. Another model I refuse to implement is affiliate marketing, where authors are paid to sell you products and services.

I prefer to fund Meaningful Money through support directly from readers. If you'd like to help keep Meaningful Money ad-free, there are eight great ways to help.

Thank you for reading and for your support!

Buy me a Beer

If you like what I do, consider buying me a beer. I enjoy a hoppy IPA, usually while sitting outside somewhere thinking of new things to write about.
