MinnPost is proud to provide all Minnesotans with in-depth coverage of local news. As a nonprofit, we make our work available to everyone. No subscription required. That paywall-free approach is only possible thanks to the generous support we receive from members.
During our Spring Member Drive, we’re aiming to earn at least 125 donations from new or renewing members. Two days into the drive, we’re at 11 donations toward that goal.
So, we’ve got some work to do before the drive ends on March 15, but we’re confident we can get there, and here’s why: Our loyal readers know how important local news is to a healthy democracy.
Also, some great thank-you gifts help. When you renew, join, or increase your support to $10/month, you get:
- A limited-edition soccer-style scarf (or a mug or water bottle, if you prefer)
- Free admission to MinnPost Social events
- Presale and discounts on tickets to our two major events: the Anniversary Celebration and MinnRoast (coming up on April 27th!)
- A one-year subscription to The Atlantic
Member donations of any amount are essential to MinnPost’s nonprofit newsroom and the in-depth coverage of local news. Those who give during the drive are encouraged to let us know why, and we’ll potentially share these comments in future updates.
Here are just a few of the reasons members have support MinnPost during the drive so far:
