We're not quite halfway through MinnPost's year-end drive, and at this pace we'll reach — or exceed — the number of donors who contributed during our 2014 campaign. Compared to 344 donors last year, we've already heard from 203 this year.
But with current donations totaling $20,287, we're still far from last year's total — $58,000 — and even farther from this year's ambitious goal of $70,000.
So please keep the donations coming. Large and small, every dollar helps.
And keep the comments coming too. More than 60 donors so far have told us what they value about MinnPost. Comments below — from the Twin Cities metro, Rochester, Bemidji and Pine City — are published with permission. Thank you all.
