Thanks to strong momentum throughout the week, we enter the final day of our Summer Member Drive poised to set a new record for total membership!
So far, we have received $10,321 this drive from 141 generous donors, including 61 first-time and 51 returning members. Thank you!
We’re looking to go out with a bang today and finish the drive with more than 2,400 member households, crossing that threshold for the first time ever. We only need a few more donations to get us there, and with your help we can do it!
What better way to prepare to celebrate Independence Day than by making a gift in support of independent journalism?
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to tell us why they decided to support MinnPost during this drive. The comments below are published with permission.
I get a different take on the news from MinnPost than I do from the local paper. – Barbara Dennis, St. Paul
Best regional coverage ever. Gives me another reason to love being a Minnesotan. Topics are relevant and reporters are extremely good writers. – Mary Quain, Minnetonka
There’s always a headline that catches my eye. Most always I find it worth the “click.” Love the use of hyper-links for additional information. – David Garron, St. Paul
You do great work! You’re the future of journalism in MN. – Daniel Maurer, St. Paul
We dropped the Star/Trib after 35 years due to diminished quality and content. While we have recently subscribed to the online version of the NYT, MinnPost has very well filled our need for local news. Thanks. – Pamela Schutjer, Saint Paul
MinnPost’s original content is a refreshing alternative to the rehashed newsfeeds and shallow coverage of other sites. I find rich articles about local issues that matter to me. – Bruce Tanquist, Minneapolis
Good writing about current and important topics is worth supporting! – Ray Lewis, Circle Pines
You provide thoughtful, timely news and analysis about important issues in Minnesota that are often not covered well in other media. – Arthur Himmelman, Minneapolis
