Public education

Our public school systems in Charlottesville and Albemarle County are the single biggest line items in our municipal budgets and the stewards of our largest stream of tax funding. Regardless of whether you have kids in public school, you are paying for them, and they are a major contributing factor to your property values. As if that weren’t enough to prioritize intelligent, in-depth coverage of public education, kids are the future of our community and our public schools are the best way to guarantee that they all get the start they deserve.
Charlottesville Tomorrow

Our mission is to work for you, providing public service journalism for the Charlottesville area. Many local news outlets are contracting or being outsourced to non-local ownership. We seek to build a sustainable model for local journalism by and for the people who live, work, and are invested in our area. To move our plan forward, we need your help. With options to give at many levels, a $5 per month ($60 per year) contribution will help expand our coverage.  At any level, your contribution invests in a sustainable future for local journalism rooted in truth, community, and equity.
