We need your help to reach our member drive goal

We’ve set a goal of 100 donations this week. Will you help us get there?

Donate to MinnPost today!Thanks to all who have donated to MinnPost this week during our Summer Member Drive. So far, 75 loyal readers have made a contribution to MinnPost, and of those, 53 have chosen to support us monthly as sustaining members.

We are thrilled to announce that we met and exceeded our $1,000 match from yesterday, thanks to 36 of our new friends. But we’re not done yet. We’ve set a goal of 100 donations this week. Will you help us get there?

Not yet convinced? Here’s what our members have to say:

“I’m a bit embarrassed it’s taken me this long, but I’m joining as a sustaining member in recognition of MinnPost’s help in getting a handle on local issues and politics.” — Rick Mons, Shoreview

“I learn something new from you every day and you have the best writers in the Twin Cities on your staff. It’s a privilege to support you!” — Marta Fahrenz and Brent Collins, Minneapolis

“MinnPost has become one of my primary news sources, and I value the depth and breadth of the reporting I find here. I also appreciate that MinnPost works hard to cover stories and issues important to greater Minnesota, not just the Twin Cities. I start every day with MinnPost and a cup of coffee, and reading MinnPost makes me a more informed, and therefore better, citizen. Thank you, MinnPost!” — Jonathan Ecklund, Roseville

So, whether you’ve known about us “forever” or you just discovered us, thank you for reading. If you haven’t yet, we hope you’ll consider making a donation or joining us as a sustaining member. Plus, this week only, get yourself a MinnPost coffee mug, Saints, or Renaissance Fest tickets just for signing up as a sustaining member. Just a little extra push from us, not that you need it.
