Community minded. Member supported.
MinnPost is your source of local, independent news and analysis on the web. While we do not charge the public to view our content, we do rely heavily on the financial support of our members: those who care enough about MinnPost’s mission to donate on a regular basis. Here are answers to some frequently asked questions.
What does it mean to be a MinnPost member?
Membership means that you are part of the MinnPost family, helping us achieve our mission through ongoing financial support.
Are donations to MinnPost tax-deductible?
Yes. MinnPost is registered with the IRS as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are fully tax-deductible.
What is sustaining membership?
Sustaining members sign up for automatically recurring monthly donations through your bank account so you'll never need to update an expiration date again. You may also sign up as a sustainer with your credit or debit card. Your membership continues uninterrupted until you request that we discontinue or change it. Click here to become a sustaining member.
Why are sustaining memberships so important?
MinnPost’s sustainers provide a dependable, ongoing source of funding while reducing administrative costs. That makes every contribution a full investment in the unique and outstanding news coverage you expect and deserve.
How can I update my payment or contact information?
Right now, we have three options:
- Click the link in your most recent recurring transaction receipt from our payment partner Acceptiva to be taken to a secure update page. (Note: This is a new feature and is only available for receipts sent after 8/21/12.)
- Re-enroll as a Sustaining Member and choose "Membership Update" from the drop-down menu in the Donor Information section.
- Contact our membership coordinator Ashleigh Swenson by phone (612-455-6954) or by email.
Do you have an annual giving option?
Yes. Click here to make a one-time donation and we'll send you a reminder in a year.
Is there a minimum donation level?
$50 a year is our basic membership level. For sustaining members who donate every month, the minimum is $5 per month or $60 a year. Donations in any amount are appreciated and will be acknowledged in our End of Year Report.
What’s with these MinnPost stickers I see around town?
Each new member receives one of our “proud supporter” decals to show your support on your car, bike, laptop, water bottle—anywhere! If you are already a member and don’t have one, contact membership coordinator Ashleigh Swenson by phone (612-455-6954) or by email.
