Local news needs your support

Like many community media outlets, the Siuslaw News is making health-related news about the coronavirus crisis free to the public. But it’s not free to us. Our team of journalists is working in our community every day, tracking down and verifying information about this disease and its impact on the region. And, they’re doing it a time when the global pandemic has brought the local economy to a near standstill — and advertising along with it. That new financial challenge means the Siuslaw News must find new ways to provide important local news and information as a public service during this unprecedented crisis.

Many of you already subscribe, and for that we are grateful. But we now are also asking subscribers and non-subscribers to consider making tax-deductible donations earmarked for our coverage of this ongoing health crisis.

If you believe local, trusted information and reporting is critical, especially during these challenging times, please consider donating to help keep Siuslaw News able to provide reporting, coverage of local events and breaking news, and features that highlight the people and moments that define our community. Contributions to this fund will help pay for news resources to cover the impact of the virus on our local communities, information on the trend in positive cases, testing sites, businesses closures and re-openings, and the impact to on students during the state ‘Stay at home’ order.

Thank you for your support of The Siuslaw News during this critical time

Thank you for your local reporting and excellent newspaper. A free press is essential to our democracy and you are our tissue-thin protection against a tsunami of digital disinformation and spin.
