Truants turns 10 this year. Truants has operated as a non-profit and ad-free platform for the last decade. In fact, the majority of our costs are covered by ourselves.

We would like to start the new decade in a place that’s more viable for the platform, which is why set up a Patreon account. We've been running off of love and dedication and your support would help us go that much further. We urge you to donate and support the future of independent music journalism. A little support would go a long way. ✨

If you're one of the people that already set up a monthly donation on Paypal, please read until the end. For those who want to help out but aren't able to donate on a regular basis, we still welcome one-off donations via Paypal.

What we can do with your help: 

- Cover our monthly costs.

- Create incentives for our writers. We are very grateful for everyone who has contributed to Truants over the years, and those who made time to write for us voluntarily amidst their busy work, university, and family schedules. We’d like to start rewarding people in the form of merchandise and music vouchers, and we need your help to do this!

- Create exclusive mixes for our Patrons: every quarter, we will release a mix by a Truants favourite DJ exclusively for the people who donate to us on a monthly basis. 

- Develop new content: we have limited time but with more money, we can make more of our ideas happen (investing in the website, investing in a zine, we have so many ideas but we need to pay ourselves to be able to commit work!)
