Thanks to you, The New Bedford Light has raised $100,000 in a matching donation challenge. We have immense gratitude for you — our loyal supporters — and for the anonymous donor who made this match possible.

Your support is helping to advance high-quality, community-based journalism in New Bedford. It will allow us to continue bringing in-depth news stories that inform readers and lead to positive change. It also means increased coverage of the region’s significant arts and culture scene. 

Thank you for believing in the power of local journalism and ensuring access for all community members. As a free, nonprofit digital news organization, The New Bedford Light would not be possible without you. It is our privilege to share this adventure with you.

Thank you to our sponsors

Founding benefactors:
Irwin and Joan Jacobs, Mary and Jim Ottaway
