This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.
The Notebook has launched a fundraising campaign to raise $45,000 by June 30, and we need your help.
We are asking readers like you to make a contribution today, so we can balance our budget and continue to provide the reporting and information you count on.
A Notebook board member pledged to match our first $5,000 in donations. When we hit that mark in one week, our board member extended her matching gift for another $5,000, a goal we reached over the weekend. Thanks to everyone who made a donation!
But we still have nearly $25,000 left to raise by the end of this month. Please consider making a contribution today.
We also are asking our friends to spread the word to other Notebook readers that if they value having independent, critical information and perspectives about public education, they need to become Notebook supporters. Readers may think that foundations and ad revenues cover our bills, but they don’t. Help us grow our membership by liking us on Facebook and telling your friends why you are supporting the Notebook.
To join the matching gift campaign, you can donate online or mail your tax-deductible donation to:
