You did it.
In less than a week, you gave another $10,000 to support public service journalism in our city and region, thereby unlocking a $50,000 year-end challenge grant from our generous Board members, community founders and friends.
That means a total of $100,000 will now go directly to supporting our nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom in 2022.
What a holiday gift — more reporters, more in-depth stories on important issues, more spotlight on the arts and civic life. More New Bedford!
All thanks to more than 600 individual donors who’ve supported us even before we began publishing in June, and have encouraged and inspired us ever since. It’s been an incredible journey, and so much more lies ahead. We can’t wait!
Wishing you the warmest of holidays and happiest of New Years,
The New Bedford Light
