Today marks the eighth day of our Spring Member Drive. In the next several days, we hope to inspire 65 more readers to make a gift in support of MinnPost’s work. Every gift will get us closer to our goal of 150 gifts, 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 qualifying amount.
Thank you to the 44 new members and 27 lapsed members who have supported MinnPost with a gift this week. Below are comments from some of them, as well as some members who have made gifts above and beyond their current membership.
Join them by making a contribution today, and when you do, please share with us why you support MinnPost.
