Local news needs your support

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the local economy to a near standstill. Revenue from advertising has gone with it. It presents a new set of financial challenges to local, family-owned newspapers like Newton Daily News. Funding that hasn’t been lost to giant corporations like Facebook and Google has been largely lost to the pandemic.

We at Newton Daily News are fighting for our own survival, while at the same time making important local news and information on a public health crisis open for you to read. 

It’s an unprecedented time. If you believe local news and information is critical to your community, please donate to this new fund to help keep us bringing you the news you need. Contributions to this fund go directly to helping pay for news resources to cover how the coronavirus impacts the communities we serve. It ensures we have the staff needed to bring you the latest COVID-19 updates, highlight what our community is doing in response, what our local medical workers have been called to do, and how we’ll ultimately pull out of this.

We’ve worked tirelessly since the start of this pandemic to be there for our communities as a reliable source of truth, just as we have with our investigative work and coverage of local government. Your contribution helps us continue that mission.

All donations to this fund are tax deductible. Thank you for your support of Newton Daily News during this period.

NDN, now NN, is something we cannot afford to lose. They have been recording our history for over one hundred years and reading the print version is the first thing I do when I get home (even though I get the mid-day headlines feed). Subscribe, advertise - do what you can.

If we lose our local newspaper, we lose our community, our spirit. Newton will spiral downward into a hole of despair and desolation, eventually becoming just a place on the interstate for travelers to stop for gas, a quick bathroom break and to stock up on snacks. We're already halfway there, let's not push us further along.
