Local news needs your support


In our current times of crisis, local news is more important than ever for the communities we serve. As an essential business, Gold Country Media continues to publish our six area newspapers to keep you, our readers, informed. However, this is difficult to do with the limited resources we must work with in these times and we appreciate the continued community support.

Our news teams are busy providing daily coverage of how this crisis affects you locally, from breaking news online to unique feature stories on local educators, first responders and everyday folks that are continuing to perform heroic tasks to help their neighbors stay safe and healthy.

With the closure of thousands of businesses, the public service we provide comes with great financial strain in these times, beyond the level that is routinely supported by advertisers and subscribers alone.

If you are a current subscriber to our print and E-editions, we thank you for that continued support. If you are not, you can help us by doing so for each of our publications at goldcountrymedia.com.

Today, we can use your additional support if you are able to do so. Currently, members of our community, like yourself, can make tax-deductible donations to our publications to assist us in continuing to bring you the local news you love in these weeks ahead.

If you believe that local, community journalism matters, please consider partnering with us with a contribution. Your donation will help fund our resources to continue to bring you the accurate, trusted news on your community that we strive to produce for those to stay informed during these crucial stay at home orders and quarantines.

Gold Country Media publishes the Auburn Journal, Folsom Telegraph, Roseville Press Tribune, Placer Herald, Lincoln News Messenger and Loomis News. We are grateful for any type of support you can provide in these challenging times.

Gold Country Media - 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.

Local newspapers are an essential source of local news, advertising and info we don't get through other media. Their survival is critical.

We need our local papers. News keeps us connected to our community and each other. Mark Twain would be proud!
