Local news needs your support


Like media outlets across the country, the Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel are working tirelessly to publish news about the coronavirus crisis free to the public. But, it is not free to produce. Our reporters and photographers are in the community every day, tracking down and verifying information about this disease and its impact on the Central Maine region. The impact of this global pandemic has brought the local economy to a near standstill. That new financial challenge means the Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel must find new ways to fund this essential news coverage.

Many of you already subscribe, and for that, we are grateful. We now ask subscribers and non-subscribers to consider making tax-deductible donations earmarked for our coverage of this crisis. If you believe local, trusted reporting is critical, please donate to help keep us on the job.

Contributions to this fund will help pay for news resources to report on the broad impact on our communities, our economy and to investigate how well our leaders are responding to the crisis.

Thank you for your support of the Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel during this unprecedented time.

The Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel -  COVID-19 Local News Fund is a program administered by Local Media Foundation, tax ID #36‐4427750, a Section 501(c)(3) charitable trust affiliated with Local Media Association. LMF is raising funds for educational activities; specifically, to educate the public on COVID-19 issues. LMF is providing funds to this news organization and many others to support this important educational project. All money raised by this effort will go directly to support COVID-19 reporting, to make sure the public has essential facts on this important topic.

Please keep the local news coming. We've been so isolated these past few months as well as being a sparsely populated state. WE NEED YOU!! Kudos to the dedicated delivery people too.
