Story

At The Bellingham Herald, we value the businesses, institutions and natural places that make Whatcom County such a special place to live. We know you do as well.

It’s clear readers like you understand the value local news can bring to a community. We’re grateful you have trusted us to do this work – and we could not do it without you.

We’re asking you to make a tax-deductible gift to support expanded coverage that looks at how COVID-19 has changed life as we knew it, and how Whatcom County will move forward with education, health care, business and jobs, the arts and outdoors. Your donation will directly support this journalism. 

The Bellingham Herald will allocate resources of the program to provide news coverage and/or investigative reporting, above and beyond routine coverage and operations, intended to inform, explain, and educate the public regarding how COVID has changed life in Whatcom County and how we recover.

Your donation will help us tell these important stories about Whatcom County.

Thanks for your support.

I love my morning paper that I can hold with my own hands, but also I love that I can access the on line version to supplement the paper version as well. Keep up the inspired and devoted work that serves our community well!
