Now, more than ever, independent local journalism needs your support

We can’t do it without you. In an economic climate in which many established news outlets are scaling back or closing, reader support makes the difference.

Our journalists go the distance and spare nothing to bring the region’s best reporting, with an emphasis on accountability journalism that keeps our local institutions acting in the public interest.

The newspapers whose logos you see here include this year’s California News Publishers Association General Excellence winner (Good Times) and this year’s Investigative Reporting winner (Bohemian); the 2019 General Excellence winner (Gilroy Dispatch); and the winner of CNPA Investigative Reporting and Arts & Entertainment coverage winner three years in a row (Metro).

Don’t let our communities become news deserts because of the COVID-19 orders that caused most local advertisers to cancel expenditures that are the lifeline of local journalism. Help us keep journalists employed by making a contribution to the publication of your choice.

All funds go directly to reporters’ salaries and health care benefits.
