Good news City Paper readers,

With your support we’ve smashed through our initial $1,000 in matching funds, and already surpassed 600 members. Thank you so much to the hundreds of you that have stepped up to support your community newspaper. In more good news, our campaign is inspiring more people to step up and give. Another reader from our initial supporter’s network was inspired to chip in to match the next $2,000 we raise through our membership program. Which is good, because we’ve set an even more ambitious goal—1,000 members. Help us reach that goal and make up for lost ad revenue due to the pandemic by becoming a member. And if you’re already a member, or can’t afford to become one right now, let your network know about our matching funds campaign, and encourage them to join as well.

If you’d like to make a larger gift and help us create a matching funds campaign, please contact membership@washingtoncitypaper.com.
