More than 50 readers have donated to MinnPost since our Summer Member Drive kicked off last week. We’re grateful to each of them for their commitment to supporting MinnPost’s coverage. Thank you!
Among the members who have contributed this past week are 30 sustaining members. The support of these new sustainers will provide MinnPost with a reliable and stable revenue source throughout the year.
Throughout this campaign, we’re thanking readers who make an ongoing commitment to MinnPost of $10/month or more with a MinnPost baseball hat.
We hope to inspire just over a hundred more readers to make a gift in support of MinnPost’s work before the drive ends on Thursday.
Gifts of just $10/month – $120 each year – make a difference. MinnPost members who make that ongoing commitment receive:
- Invitations to a variety of free and paid members-only events
- Free admission to MinnPost Social events with featured journalists
- Pre-sale and discounts on tickets to our two major events: MinnRoast and our Anniversary Party
- A one-year subscription to The Atlantic
- And, this drive only, a limited edition MinnPost baseball hat
There are many benefits of MinnPost membership – including digital New York Times access for new subscribers who become Platinum members.
We remain grateful for the support of our more than 3,100 member-households – whose contributions are our largest and most reliable funding source – and so we’ll be working extra hard this week to cultivate new and returning donors.
Those who would like to get us off to a strong start are encouraged to make a gift today, and tell us why they did.
Below are comments from some of the readers who have given this week, reprinted with permission.
I like the in-depth articles and the local touch. – Donald Kleven, Plymouth
I want to support good journalism and factual reporting. – Suzann Willhite, St. Louis Park
I enjoy Minnesota news that is easy to receive in a concise format and written by seasoned journalists, without a lot of “fluff.” – Daniel Casar, New Brighton
Your well-written timely articles are a valuable source of news when I am visiting in the Upper Midwest. – Alice Janet Scheevel, Grand Junction, Colorado
I give to support great writing. News, not opinions. – Paul Tillquist, St. Paul
I am a lifelong Duluthian who has watched our local newspaper make a slow demise from well-covered news to drivel. I’ve been looking for other sources to fill the gap. I’m impressed with MinnPost’s coverage and am happy to support a ‘paper’ that actually provides me with what’s happening in my great state and beyond. – Janet E. Olson, Duluth
