A local, anonymous benefactor has offered to match your individual gifts in the following way:

  • Up to $100, three-to-one

Your donation will help fund the difficult work of digging deep into important local issues, using fact-based research to provide context and insight. It will help us connect with the whole of our community, including those traditionally underrepresented in mainstream media. And it will help us recruit and train local residents in the basics of independent newsgathering.
