Nonprofit, independent journalism. Supported by readers.


The hard truth

Financial support for nonprofit organizations is down, including news organizations like MinnPost.

Become a MinnPost member today!

It’s the last day of our fall member drive and we need to hear from 48 more readers to reach our goal of 120 donors by midnight.

The hard truth is, financial support for nonprofit organizations is down, including news organizations like MinnPost. A lot of folks stepped up to support local news in 2020 — not only to get information about the COVID-19 pandemic, but also for news on the presidential election.

Since then, the number of people supporting MinnPost has declined, but the need for in-depth independent journalism has not. A lot has happened these last few years — and MinnPost has been your constant source of reporting on all of these issues.

Our reporters work hard to bring you the news that matters and report in a way that goes beyond the headlines. Will you step up now to support their work?

Right now, one of the things we’re focusing on is reporting on local elections. Our voter guides show you where candidates stand on issues, and our reporters have been diving into the communities that can be affected by the results of these elections.

That work comes at a cost and that’s why we need your support.
