MinnPost’s year-end campaign started Wednesday, December 3, and we’re already hearing from lots of folks. Some are first-time donors, others are returning, and we are grateful to every single one.
All donations received by December 31 will help us reach one or both of our ambitious year-end goals:
- Goal #1: donations from 375 households that have not supported MinnPost so far this year.
- Goal #2: total donations of $60,000, surpassing the $56,000 that came in at the end of 2013.
We love to hear the reasons people support MinnPost. We’ll publish a sampling of comments as they come in during this campaign. The comments below are reprinted with permission.
