MinnPost’s end-of-year fundraising campaign enters its second week with 33 gifts of support from readers including gifts from 12 new sustaining members.
This campaign is our largest of the year, and its outcome will determine how much momentum we have heading into 2017. Our goal is $75,000, which will directly support our critical state and local reporting in 2017.
New this drive, readers who become Platinum members by giving at least $20 per month (or $240 at one time) will be eligible for new one-year digital subscriptions to The New York Times.
And when you do, take a moment to tell us why. Below are testimonials we’ve received in the first days of the campaign, reprinted with permission. We will continue to reprint them as the member drive continues.
