Local news needs your support


What if local news…stopped, just when we needed it most?

The Monitor isn’t at that point. But we’ll be honest: This is a rough moment. The COVID-19 emergency has shut down or deeply affected nearly all of our local advertisers, who account for about half the paper’s revenue.

We’ve taken down the paywall at our website, and we’re posting reports to our public Facebook page, because we believe strongly that everyone in Jefferson County should have access to information that will help them navigate this unprecedented crisis.

But that doesn’t help pay the bills of our small news organization. That’s why we’re asking you, even if you already subscribe, to make a donation to help support our coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on our community. (And if you’re not yet a subscriber yet, now’s a great moment to join up.)

Your donations will help us keep us quickly share news of this emergency as it emerges. We’ll talk to key local actors who are guiding Jefferson County’s policy and tell you how schools, businesses, and community groups are responding. We’ll tell stories of individuals and families who are coping with a changed world. 

This coverage is at the core of The Monitor’s mission to serve the future of Jefferson County. It’s why we’re here – helping citizens to understand not just what’s happening, but also how they can respond to forge a stronger community.

Through our partnership with the Local Media Foundation, donations are tax deductible. And we’ll acknowledge all donors in the newspaper and on our site.

Thank you for your support of The Monitor during this critical time.
