Local news needs your support

Raleigh Convergence is a community-centric, locally-owned modern local media company connecting Raleigh area residents to active civic and cultural life.

And we need your help. The coronavirus pandemic is a generation-defining crisis and will affect the future for our shared home.

We’re asking for your support to contribute to this fund so we can create more local journalism around the implications of the coronavirus for our community.

Raleigh Convergence, through free curated newsletters, the website and social publishing, continues to inform Wake County residents about what’s going on with the coronavirus now.

We explain without overwhelming, we share how you can help by amplifying the efforts of do-gooders in our community.

We want to continue to explain the impact -- on the platforms people use now -- while keeping our content free for all to read as much as you wish.

Your contribution will help sustain the increased editorial efforts on COVID-19 while helping expand editorial bandwidth for thoughtful, data-driven reporting, told in an understandable way.

If you believe in information equity, if you believe in creating the future of local news, and if you believe in the future of Raleigh, please support the Raleigh Convergence COVID-19 local news fund.
