Support local news

We have a springtime match from an anonymous donor! You can double, triple, even quadruple your impact now. In-depth reporting that makes a difference in New Bedford wouldn’t be possible without your generosity.

*Here are the terms, depending upon the size of your gift:

  • Gifts of $100 and below will be matched 3:1 ($100 becomes $400)
  • Gifts of $101 through $1,000 will be matched 2:1 ($1,000 becomes $3,000)
  • Gifts above $1,000 will be matched 1:1 ($2,500 becomes $5,000)

*The match applies to individual donations only. Gifts from businesses and foundations, though gratefully accepted, are not included in the match.

We need hundreds of our readers to support The Light to meet the full $100,000 match by June 30. Will you give to local journalism in New Bedford?
