YubaNet.com Double the Capacity - 2022 Local News Fund

Team Members



We believe our intense focus on news and emergency information has allowed us to grow during what has been a very unsteady time for media.

Funds raised will allow us to hire a team of two reporters so they can focus their efforts on deep reporting that will have a positive impact on the community. We want to expand our newsroom and hire a dedicated local government reporter and a data reporter. Schools, local government and special districts are undergoing rapid changes. Data reporting is lacking in our area, from mapping broadband availability in high fire danger zones to uneven distribution of funding in rural areas. In short, we can double our newsroom capacity with your help.

The time and effort it takes to do this type of reporting is not cheap and we need your help and support. Many of you already subscribe, and for that, we are grateful. But we now are also asking subscribers and non-subscribers to consider making tax-deductible donations to increase our coverage of key issues.

Outstanding local journalism can be an excellent prescription for problems that ail society as we can shine a light on problems and help to offer solutions. YubaNet will bring the same level of commitment, enthusiasm and focus to our investigative reporting as we have to providing the best local news in our communities. After all, we all live here!

Thank you for your support of YubaNet!
