This is your chance to support great local journalism

When people ask me why I took the job as the editor of Crosscut, I tell them it’s because this is what the future looks like. As traditional media fades, a vibrant news ecosystem is emerging.

Crosscut plays a vital role in that ecosystem. I wanted to be a part of it.

I hope you’ll be a part of it, too, by making a contribution today, the first day of our Fall Member Drive.

What’s in it for you? You get insights every day into how and why our region is changing. You get incisive news about local and state politics, technology, business, arts and culture. You get a diverse array of voices and opinions, and thought-provoking commentary on the most pressing issues of the day.

You also get a host of member perks, like discount tickets and a Big Bertha tote bag. And today only, a generous donor has agreed to match every donation over $125 with an additional $125. Your $125 becomes $250. A gift of $200 becomes $325. Double your money -- or just put a little icing on the cake.

We cover the stories that need to be told. You look smart at the dinner party. We can all make smarter decisions about what we want this region to look like in the decades to come. Everyone wins.

But we can only do that with your help. Crosscut is a reader-supported nonprofit. That means you are the lifeblood of this place. When you make a gift today, you keep the lights on and the stories flowing.

Please take a minute and join us in creating rooted, smart, solutions-minded media for this region we all love.


Please support independent local news for all.

We rely on donations from readers like you to sustain Crosscut's in-depth reporting on issues critical to the PNW.
