An important message from Vermont Community Newspaper Group publisher Greg Popa

The COVID-19 virus has affected us all and has impacted every business, but it’s not the only challenge affecting hyper-local community journalism.

Our company, the Vermont Community Newspaper Group, publishes five award-winning weekly newspapers — The Stowe Reporter, News & Citizen, The Other Paper of South Burlington, Shelburne News, and The Citizen — and we rely 100 percent on local advertising to underwrite the cost of providing topnotch professional, hyper-local journalism to our readers.

Those revenues pay for our operations — from our dedicated staff to all related business expenses, including printing and delivery of the newspaper, and hosting digital operations.

So, please consider a donation to ensure that our locally owned, independent media businesses can continue to serve the communities of South Burlington, Stowe, Morrisville, Hyde Park, Shelburne, Wolcott, Hardwick, Craftsbury, Greensboro, Cambridge, Johnson, Charlotte, Hinesburg, Waterville, Belvidere and Eden.

We remain committed to keeping our readers and our communities informed at this critical time — and into the future. If you value independent journalism, consider a tax-deductible donation to ensure we can continue to deliver the information that you and the community of Stowe have come to rely upon.

Your local newspaper needs your help!

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

New England Press Association Scholarship Fund, Inc., tax ID #23‐7297724, is a Section 501(c)(3) organization and is eligible to accept charitable contributions.
