Join our summer fund drive! Become a member today to help us reach our $50K goal
Fall membership drive - LAST DAY!
This is it. It’s the last day of our fall membership drive, and your last chance to help us reach our goal of adding 25 members, and to own one of these reusable shopping totes with our logo. We’re still just a few members shy of meeting our goal.
We hope you will help us make it happen.
As you know, we are modeled on, among other things, public broadcasting. Our funding model depends on the support of our readers to keep producing 100 percent ad-free journalism. Our independence from commercial funding allows us to cover stories that see the city and the Bay Area from the viewpoint of average people, and to cover stories and communities that traditionally receive little attention from the press.
But we can’t do it alone. Join us. Memberships start at $35. One benefit of membership across all levels is a subscription to the print edition. Each paper features a special team reporting project that takes an in-depth look at an under-covered news topic. Recent reports include:
- the struggle to fund Healthy San Francisco, the city’s universal health care alternative
- efforts to assess and combat human trafficking in the Bay Area
- financial and political pressures facing Bay Area smart growth planning
- how San Francisco has stumbled in tracking and prosecuting domestic violence cases
As a member, you’ll receive print editions in the mail, hot off the presses, for a year. Don’t miss another issue. Become a member today!
Thank you for your support.
