MinnPost’s Spring Member Drive continues through Thursday evening. In the final days, we need just 39 more readers to make a gift in support of MinnPost’s work to help us reach our goal of 150 gifts, and support the year-round work of our journalists.
We have also released a brand-new MinnPost ceramic mug that is perfect for the coffee or other beverage you drink as you read MinnPost each morning. The mug features the MinnPost logo on one side and on the other the words “It’s actually QUITE interesting” — a phrase, inspired by wonkish public-policy stories, that’s become a catchphrase in our office. The mug is a benefit of Silver membership or above, to new or renewing donors who give the equivalent of $5/month or more.
A special thank you to the 58 new members and 37 lapsed members who have made contributions this week. Join them by making a contribution today, and when you do, please share with us why you support MinnPost.
