For more than 10 years, we’ve made it our mission to cover communities on the North Side and South Side that only make the news when there is trouble.

We know better. And because of us, you’ve met many ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things in our neighborhoods. Our work is free to all. But our labor is not. To pay our professional staff to perform this essential work, we need your support more than ever.

That’s why we’re excited to share that we have an opportunity to make your donation go even further this year through NewsMatch, an industry-wide movement to sustain journalism through matching gifts on the local and national level. Since 2016 NewsMatch has raised over $150 million to keep nonprofit journalism like ours going strong.

Here’s how it works.

Starting now—through December 31— NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12 times or double your one-time gift, all up to $1,000. That means that, through NewsMatch, we can earn up to $25,000.

Your support will help us continue to report about your neighbors. And if we don’t, who will? Many of you have told me how much you value the work we do. Help us keep our dedicated staff employed. If you value the critical work we do, will you give today?

Invest in news for the people, with the people. Give nonprofit. Give now.  

With gratitude,

Ron Smith
