Nonprofit, nonpartisan journalism. Supported by readers.


We don’t do Pledge Week … but MinnPost does need your financial support!


Are you a regular reader of Right now, about 950 of our readers are MinnPost members who have voluntarily decided to make an annual donation, most ranging from $50 (the Cub Reporter level) to $5,000 (Media Moguls). That means there are many thousands of you who regularly read, but have not yet donated.

When we talk to people about MinnPost, many readers tell us that they did not realize that MinnPost is a tax-exempt nonprofit that depends on ongoing contributions, just as public TV and radio do.

We won’t interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to ask you to donate — just as we won’t run intrusive ads that block your view or video ads that play without your permission. But for MinnPost to succeed, we do need your financial support. Please take this message seriously and make a contribution now. Thanks very much for your support.

— Joel Kramer, editor and CEO

P.S. Everyone who becomes a member between now and Aug. 31 will be entered in a drawing for a pair of tickets to “Il Trovatore” at the Minnesota Opera in late September. Winner will be announced Sept. 2.
