Thanks to generous gifts from dozens of readers, our Summer Member Drive is off to a great start. In our first day, we received 28 donations totaling $1,610, including 17 donations from new or returning members. That puts us almost a fifth of the way to our goal of adding 100 member households before our drive ends on July 2.
Those who have already stepped up told us they gave for a variety of reasons, prompted by everything from the quality of our news coverage to our growing list of member benefits.
Regardless of what inspires them, member donations make MinnPost possible by providing the majority of our revenue. We encourage you to show your support for nonprofit news by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
