Join the Summer 2015 Campaign

Issue No. 1 of the San Francisco Public Press arriving from the printer in June 2010.

Can you believe we published our first newspaper five years ago this month? We're putting finishing touches on Issue No. 17 and are excited to share our findings on how cities around the bay are managing waterfront development in light of consensus projections for sea level rise. (Hint: We didn't find many long-range plans.)

The report will include context-rich maps in print and video and interactive elements online to give a clear view of how our region is changing and what it could look like in the not-too-distant future.

The San Francisco Public Press needs your support to continue producing in-depth investigations that show the real impact of public policy decisions and help all of us in the Bay Area understand our communities better.

You can help us to reach our goal of raising $50,000 this summer by donating to renew your membership or become a member today.

We are already halfway there. Several supporters helped launch this summer campaign with pledges totaling $25,000, including a $15,000 matching grant from the San Francisco Foundation.

By adding your donation, you will help produce investigations on undercovered issues like the disparity in fundraising by parent-teacher associations, the focus of a data-intensive story we broke in 2014. This year, that report received a Sigma Delta Chi Award for investigative reporting from the Society of Professional Journalists, and a John Swett Award for Media Excellence from the California Teachers Association.

Our goal is to lead in improving community coverage. We tackle topics like the tortuous path from homelessness to housing, delays in communicating with tenants and homeowners about the earthquake vulnerability of soft-story buildings, how San Francisco tracks its myriad workforce development programs, and increased segregation in San Francisco public schools.

Become a member of the San Francisco Public Press today to help us continue our work as a trailblazer for public-interest journalism.

Thank you for your support!
