Team Members















Over the last 15 years, the news business has changed a lot. We rely more and more on philanthropy and the support of people like you who believe in the importance of local journalism.

Your contributions help us keep you informed and support investigative reporting that makes a real difference in our community and our state. It’s work that no other news organization will do.

If you believe in that mission, please help during our fundraising drive from Oct. 4 through 8. We're trying to raise the equivalent of a week's newsroom budget; most of that represents salaries. You can make a tax-deductible donation - in a favorite journalist’s name - at or by check.

Beyond the money, which makes a real difference, it is wonderful to have friends like you in our corner.

Thank you.

Participating in our newsroom fundraiser is voluntary and features about a quarter of our staff. Just as subscribers, other donors and advertisers cannot expect favorable coverage, people who donate to our campaign do not influence our editorial decisions.


This campaign is a program of Journalism Funding Partners (JFP), tax ID #84-2968843, a verified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to “increase the depth, diversity and sustainability of local journalism by building and stewarding connections between funders and news organizations.”

JFP is providing funds to this news organization for their endeavors in support of this educational purpose, and will share your information with the publication you are supporting. JFP takes your privacy seriously, and we are committed to safeguarding, preserving, and respecting the privacy rights of our donors, website visitors, and other supporters. For additional information on how JFP maintains your personal information, please see our Privacy Policy.
