You met the match!

The New Bedford Light is thrilled to announce that we have reached our $100,000 early launch goal. Huge thanks to the 248 donors who made it happen!

And deep gratitude to the anonymous donor who has pledged to match your donations, in some cases doubling, tripling and even quadrupling your individual gifts. Your generosity has helped us meet the $100,000 match challenge well before our September deadline.

Please remember that The New Bedford Light has just begun. We look forward to your ongoing support as our nonprofit, nonpartisan local news outlet evolves and grows — FREE to our community!

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.
