Today marks the halfway point of our Spring Member Drive. In the next four days, we hope to inspire 85 more readers to make a gift in support of MinnPost’s work. Every gift will get us closer to our goal, and support the year-round work of our talented journalists.
Throughout the drive, we’re thanking members with a print subscription to The Atlantic for donations of as little as $5 a month — half the normal amount.
Thank you to the 45 new members who have joined this week. Below are comments from some of them, as well as some current members who have made gifts above and beyond their current membership.
Join them with a contribution today, and when you do, please share with us why you support MinnPost.
Here’s what a few of the readers who have already contributed during this campaign had to say about why they support MinnPost:
Mainstream news focuses heavily on ‘what’s new,’ but MinnPost focuses more on ‘so what?’ It analyzes the implications of developments. A healthy democracy needs both types of journalism. – Joseph Loveland, Maplewood
I think MinnPost is a clear source for news with deeper level of reporting, especially on its regional focus. I particularly am impressed with the arts coverage and Pamela Espeland’s writing. – Robert Briscoe, Minneapolis
I think it very important that we have a competitive source for local, high quality news besides the Star Tribune. – Peter Sammond, Minnetonka
MinnPost’s in-depth reporting is excellent. These journalists take the time to explore the complexity of important issues. I always learn something when I read MinnPost. – Jennifer Tuder, Columbia Heights
It’s a great resource. I subscribe to the NYT daily and read local newspapers at my coffee shop and MinnPost fills an important gap. – Judy Mahle Lutter, St. Paul
