Today is the start of MinnPost’s summer member drive. Between now and July 31, we hope to add 100 new sustainers – building on the 877 sustainers on our current donor list.
More than half of MinnPost’s annual budget comes directly from our generous donors. Sustainers are particularly important to our sustainability. Their automatically recurring monthly donations provide a dependable, ongoing source of funding while reducing administrative costs. That makes every contribution a full investment in the outstanding journalism our readers expect and deserve.
Sustainers choose the amount they wish to donate monthly. Recurring donations start at $5 or $10 and go up to $50 a month or more. The amount of a recurring donation can be changed at any time.
Wondering why many of our readers decide to become sustainers? Check out these reasons – and sign up today!

I’m choosing to become a sustaining member of MinnPost because it is the first paper I read in the morning now and I feel it is important to support quality news by paying for the service. I want MinnPost to succeed. – Teresa Fishel, St. Paul, sustaining member since 2011
Nonprofit news sites are emerging as the best places to find the in-depth, truthful (versus falsely balanced) reporting that is necessary for democracy to function as the founders intended, and MinnPost is leading the way. – Shawn Otto, Marine on Saint Croix, sustaining member since 2012
