The Maine Journalism Foundation congratulates Masthead Maine’s owner, Reade Brower, on the pending sale of his company to the National Trust for Local News . We are delighted that the largest media company in Maine will convert to a non-profit outlet with a mission to provide independent, nonpartisan local news across the state, bolstering communities large and small.

The Maine Journalism Foundation is grateful beyond measure to our hundreds of donors and supporters whose efforts have made this possible. It was your trust and faith in the future of journalism expressed through your gifts and offers of support that kept this effort moving forward to this incredible outcome. We are thrilled to have collaborated with the National Trust and look forward to continuing to shape the future of journalism in Maine.

Donations toward the purchase of Masthead Maine can now be made here: nationaltrustforlocalnews.org/maine.
