This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.
The Notebook has a rare opportunity for organizational growth in the month of June, and it’s also an opportunity for our readers to double their impact.
We have received a generous "matching gift" from an anonymous donor aimed at increasing the number of readers who are also members of the Notebook community. From now until June 30, every new and renewed membership in the Notebook will be matched by this donor dollar for dollar up to $8,000. Each individual gift of up to $1,000 will be matched.
And, if you sign up today as a member at our associate level ($60) or higher, not only is your membership gift matched, but you’re eligible for a discount admission to our June 7 event.
Our goal is to get 150 new and renewed members over the next month. I think we can do it — with your help.
If you’re already a member, please pass this information on! If not, please help us take advantage of this generous match.
Membership is a key part of the strategy for sustaining the Notebook as the potent news organization that stakeholders of Philadelphia’s public education system need. Your membership includes a copy of each of the six annual issues of the Notebook sent to you by first-class mail. Most importantly, your gift supports and empowers the Notebook‘s edgy, independent reporting.
Please help us swell the number of people who are affirming their connection to this community of readers and learners by signing on as a member and helping us meet our goal! We can do it!
