Dear reader,

We need your help.

Coronavirus has brought unanticipated and significant challenges to our families and our communities. And how we respond to this pandemic is the biggest story of our lives.

At the CDT we feel a responsibility to ensure we share the full picture with you. Since March, we have produced hundreds of pieces of content -- stories, videos and more -- from breaking news to enterprise reporting to high-utility journalism that answers questions you’ve had.

We are grateful we can be here for you.

And like you, we are stressed. About our health and our ability to do our work. The pandemic has brought layoffs, furloughs and salary reductions to newsrooms large and small. We’re fighting like mad to hold the line, like many local businesses, and so far we’ve done so thanks to your readership and support via digital and print subscriptions.

But it’s a steep hill, and we’re thinking creatively about how to climb it.

If you see value in what we’re doing every day, and if you can support us, please help us bridge this gap.

Your tax-deductible gift can ensure we continue to report on the coronavirus and all of its impacts across our communities. We aim to raise $20,000 to keep our reporters reporting, our visual journalist recording and our editors at work delivering essential news and information to you.

With help from the Local Media Foundation, your gift goes directly to ensuring sustainability for the CDT and continued accountability reporting as we navigate this critical time.
