Local news needs your support

With the COVID-19 virus causing the shutdown of bars, restaurants, events, concerts, and more, the Reader is losing a crucial base of advertising support. This will mean a serious contraction of our budget, and additional struggles ahead.

We are asking readers and supporters to chip in and help preserve the Chicago Reader’s legacy.

Every donation, no matter how small, gets us closer to riding out this storm.


Chicago Reader - 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.
