An anonymous donor has pledged up to $100,000 in matching funds for every individual* gift received before Sept. 1. Here’s how it works:

  • For gifts up to $100, our anonymous donor will match 3-to-1. (For example, if you give $50, the donor will contribute an additional $150.)
  • For gifts up to $1,000, the donor will match 2-to-1. (For example, if you give $500, the donor will contribute an additional $1,000.)
  • For gifts over $1,000, the donor will match 1-to-1. (For example, if you give $5,000, the donor will contribute an additional $5,000.)

Don’t miss this opportunity to double, triple and even quadruple your early gift. We are so grateful to our anonymous donor, and to you, for helping us launch The New Bedford Light. Thank you for supporting nonprofit, nonpartisan community journalism!

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

Thank you for supporting free independent journalism.

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.
