Thanks to the generous support of more than 600 readers during the 2017 Year-End Drive, MinnPost is only $2,691 away from hitting our goal of $75,000. With donations still coming in, we could still get there in the coming days.
A big thank you to those who donated during the drive or any time in 2017. Member support makes it possible for MinnPost to provide engaged Minnesotans with in-depth reporting on the issues impacting our state.
