As a San Antonio Heron reader, you already know that we prioritize truth over profits. Our contributors work tirelessly to produce public service journalism that you can trust because you deserve to have a go-to source for the news that matters most to you. This is essential work, especially these days, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of Heron donors like you.

Make your donation go even further this year through NewsMatch, a collaborative fundraising movement to support independent, public service journalism like ours.

Here’s how it works.

Now through Dec. 31, the Knight Foundation, the Heising-Simons Foundation and NewsMatch will match any one-time gift you make to the Heron (up to $1,000), and match any new monthly recurring donation x 12.

That means that, through NewsMatch, we can earn up to $30,000.

We are grateful for your existing support. If you can go above and beyond with an additional gift, you will help keep us going and get our campaign off to a strong start. If you believe in the work we’re doing, will you give today to double the impact of your donation?


The Heron's mission is to play a leading role in shaping a well-informed electorate in San Antonio with our special brand of journalism, one that truly puts the reader first.

The Heron is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization; our EIN is 83-1163274.

We are the San Antonio Heron. We launched in 2018 as a nonprofit newsroom focussed on writing about downtown development and the ripple effect it has on inner city neighborhoods.


Rather than chase after breaking news stories, we strive to help explain how the world works, especially when it comes to housing.

While other news outlets cover housing and development, we take a uniquely explanatory approach to it. We dive deep into these topics with fresh research (both hard and empirical data) and by providing context no one else does in this city.

Please make payable to: San Antonio Heron

We hope you'll contribute to our cause of informing San Antonio about its changing inner city.
