Can we ask you a favor?

In general, about 80% of our revenue comes from advertising and about 20% from donations. Our business model — and our advocacy journalism — depends more on your financial support than other news businesses do. If your budget allows for it, please make a contribution. We do charge advertisers for the ability to reach and engage with our audiences. That revenue stream depends less on the size of our audience than it does on the local economy, which drives advertising dollars. As always, with questions or comments, please contact us here.
