Spring Member Drive far surpasses goal; donations keep newsroom going strong

The Spring Member Drive closed on a high note, ending with 162 donations from readers in support of MinnPost’s in-depth local news coverage.  That far surpasses the goal of 125 donations set at the beginning of the drive and ensures our nonprofit newsroom has the resources it needs to keep our work going strong.

A huge THANK YOU to the generous readers who gave during the drive, as well as those who’ve given at any point over the past year. MinnPost is only able to deliver insightful reporting on the complex issues facing Minnesota thanks to member support at all levels.

For those readers who meant to give during the drive, but didn’t get around to it, MinnPost gratefully accepts — and relies on — donations from readers each and every day of the year.

Thanks again to all members, especially those who helped hit the drive goal.
