Thank you for being interested in sponsoring our community-driven journalism! Our sponsors program is a way for organizations and institutions to invest in our work and demonstrate their commitment to improving the news and information ecosystem in our community. We are a nonprofit organizations so it is not paid advertising or a way to get press coverage for a fee, but it is a great way to show our community of loyal readers that your organization is engaged and wants to strengthen local news!

Here’s our editorial independence policy.

Please be aware that nonprofit sponsorship is not the same is advertising and at this time we cannot take sponsorships that directly sell or encourage financial transactions, or advocate for a political candidate. We reserve the right to review and refuse sponsorships for any reason.
