El Planeta 's Story
Our role in quiet times is core for the Hispanic/LatinX communities of Massachusetts -- but when we need social cohesion and top-down effective communication, our role turns vital. That’s why El Planeta is asking you to partner with us in an effort to reach those in the community who are most lacking for the vital information we provide.Now more than ever, local professional journalism is incredibly valuable, and we at El Planeta are doing all we can to maintain our organization intact with the same number of journalists, producers, translators, graphic designers, circulation staff, and marketing personnel.
In times of uncertainty, the importance of reliable news and information is vital.
Local newspapers play a critical role in the communities they serve, making us all stronger. They are dedicated to keeping you informed, whether it is a local issue or a worldwide epidemic that is a danger to our communities, they are there to deliver consistent, quality local news coverage. Especially now, local news is a crucial public service that is keeping people informed and safe.
Traditional advertising revenue, which everyone has counted on to fund the free press, has been decimated by the current crisis, and the loss of advertising dollars has threatened the existence of many newspapers.
The New England Press Association Scholarship Fund, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, created the Local Community News Fund of New England and this fund-raising portal to allow tax deductible donations to support your local newspaper.
Local newspapers remain strong in their commitment to serve their community and, with some assistance from loyal readers, they can keep reporters on the job working to provide resources and information that every community needs.
You can ensure that your community continues to get the local news and information it needs by donating to this fund. All donations will go to the newspaper of your choice, and will help pay reporters’ salaries and other costs of covering the local community.
All donations to this fund are tax deductible. Thank you for supporting local newspapers. Together, we can make it through this.
Local Community News Fund of New England is a service of, and administered by, New England Press Association Scholarship Fund, Inc., affiliated with New England Newspaper and Press Association.
