Frequently asked questions
Why should you support The961?
The961 is an independent and nonprofit media outlet. Unused funding will be donated to the community. We don't receive support from political parties or governments looking to push their agenda. We rely on the community to support us.
We've been detained and faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits aimed at draining our resources.
Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work.
Can I pay with something other than my credit card?

I’m in Lebanon and I want to make a contribution or subscribe. Is it possible?
These contributions count as international charges by your bank (similar to Netflix). If your bank allows for it and it’s within the allocated budget set by them, then you won’t have any issues making payments. If you’re limited, like many Lebanese, it will decline your transaction unfortunately.We’re looking for ways to accept contributions from the many Lebanese who want to support us. Until then, please pay it forward on our behalf to local NGOs on the ground in Lebanon. A few of our favorites are the Lebanese Red Cross, Embrace (suicide prevention), Lebanese Food Bank (food insecurity), FoodBlessed (food insecurity) and Mariam & Martha (domestic violence).
