Nonprofit, nonpartisan journalism. Supported by readers.


Blowing past goal, 185 members donate during fall drive to fund election coverage

Many thanks to those who gave during the drive or at any time in the last year.

Donate to MinnPost today!

Our journalists have ambitious coverage plans for this fall’s election, and thanks to the generous MinnPost readers who gave during the Fall Member Drive, those plans will become a reality.

The goal was to inspire 150 new/renewing members during the drive, and when all was said and done, we heard from 185 generous nonprofit news supporters. Many thanks to those who gave during the drive or at any time in the last year. Your generosity fuels our team’s unparalleled coverage of Minnesota politics.

And hey, if you meant to donate during the drive, but didn’t get a chance, please consider doing so now! While we do drives to encourage member support several times throughout the year, we’re honored to receive donations on any day, because that just means more resources for our nonprofit newsroom.
