We’re in the final days of 2017 and the Year-End Drive. So far, we’ve received donations from over 400 readers, adding up to $51,021 of support for our nonprofit newsroom. A big thanks to those who’ve already given.
To hit our goal of $75,000 before midnight on December 31, we need to raise $23,979. We’re confident we can do it, and here’s why: we know MinnPost readers care about high-quality journalism that focuses on the issues that matter.
That kind of in-depth coverage is at the heart of MinnPost’s work, which is only possible thanks to tax-deductible donations of all shapes and sizes that we receive from readers.
Readers who want to help us hit our goal and keep our nonprofit newsroom going strong in 2018 are encouraged to make a year-end contribution by December 31.
We always ask supporters why they give to MinnPost. Below is just a sampling of recent comments, which we’re sharing with permission.
