Support Transtelex!

Where Transylvanians get their news from - it only depends on you!

Free press in Transylvania! The resignation of the journalists of Transindex has left a void in Transylvanian public life similar to that of the group resignation (from the Hungarian Index) of the Telex team back in the day. Due to this, we have decided to use part of the funds received from Telex’s committed supporters to save this part of the Hungarian public sphere in Transylvania: We are establishing Transtelex!
We are inviting you to join our endeavour as a supporter!

What is Transtelex?

  • A free paper for Transylvanians about Transylvania, and much more.
  • A news website not controlled by the ones in power, and which speaks to everyone.
  • A place which connects.
  • A place of community, a meeting place, where everyone can find something interesting.
  • It is curious, accurate, critical, informative and entertaining.
  • It is innovative, precise, and shares the values of Telex.
  • While preserving the values of the past, it is about the present. It is fresh, modern and up-to-date.

So what do we need money for?

Our goal is for Transtelex to grow into an economically independent publication, which is sustainable in the long term. To ensure this, we need adequate funds to get it up and running.

The number of editorial staff is quite a bit lower than at Telex, but we have similarly ambitious plans as in the case of Telex: we would like Transtelex to be a modern, fresh news portal which has something for everyone. We want it to be a place whose operation is not up to the whims and fancies of political or semi-political actors, but it is kept alive and running by its own audience.

FAQ

I am not a supporter yet

Thanks to our current supporters, we are able to embark on this huge adventure of starting Transtelex. However, we will need more supporters in order to ensure the stability of this new publication.

A project of this size costs a lot of money. The maintenance costs themselves are going to be several million forints per month. Due to this, we are asking you to support us with the maximum amount available to you for this purpose.

Transparency is very important to us, so as you have come to expect from Telex, we will regularly publish a transparency report to show what the donations are being used for.

Here’s the short answer: no, it is not considered as such. We are asking for support, and if you choose to give some, that’s all it will be.

We are unable to provide receipts as this does not constitute a provision of services.

Yes, you can, but before doing so it may be a good idea to check with your accountant because the donation cannot be considered an expense and so doesn’t reduce your corporate tax base.

It’s technically possible, however, we don’t recommend this solution. If you nevertheless wish to support us in this manner, we ask that you first get in contact with us at [email protected].

The financial service fees associated with credit card payments make it such that payments below a certain amount are too costly and therefore not worthwhile.
