Small Wars Journal

Small Wars Journal, Operated by Small Wars Foundation

Small Wars Foundation assumed ownership and operation of Small Wars Journal from Small Wars Journal, LLC on June 1, 2008.

Small Wars Journal has never been operated with a profit motive. The LLC was a way to get the site started, add rigor to its management, and maybe allow us to keep our houses (and, accordingly, our wives) in the odd chance we pissed off someone with a good lawyer.

We built it, and you have come. There has been a great response, and we look forward to doing more to serve the community.

Small Wars Foundation is the right corporate structure for the site to move forward, develop more capabilities, sustain operations, and deliver to its vision. Small Wars Foundation is a Virginia corporation formed exclusively for charitable, educational, and literary purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Federal filing is in process for formal determination of status as a non-profit organization.

The core vision of the site, outlined on the About page, remains the same. We haven't fired the Editor-in-Chief or Publisher, yet. Other developments to follow.

501(c)(3)? Sweet. If I ever type a comment that is deemed to have some value, then can I deduct this on my income taxes?

In all seriousness, congrats. This site is very well run. Considering the open format and the degree to which the subject matter is on the minds of everyone from pro's to amateurs to random schmoes, you guys do a very good job of keeping the discussions candid, thoughtful, and civil. It is rare for any site to get 2 out of 3 and very rare to hit the trifecta.
