Strong reporting is at the center of the Notebook’s mission. It is the instrument that we use to engage our audience and provide in-depth information that can inspire and drive change. With the increasing importance of our 24-7 web operation, and the downsizing of traditional media operations in the city, we need to invest in our reporting staff.
We are thrilled to announce that we have received a matching gift to launch a June fundraising campaign to help us hire a new staff reporter. Every dollar donated through June 30 will be matched up to $20,000!
In addition, the first 50 people to renew their Notebook membership or sign up as new members will receive a pair of tickets to the Franklin Institute. Donate online today to help us cover more of the education stories you care about.
Thank you for your support!
