Thank you, readers! You are amazing.

Dear friends,

We asked you to fund the type of grassroots journalism only Crosscut can deliver and you answered with resounding support. Thanks to your generous donations, we raised more than $45,000 during our Fall Member Drive!

New and returning members had these things to say about Crosscut:

"I've donated to ensure Seattle's soul lives on no matter what and encourage you to do the same!" - Julianna Ross

"Thank you for your REAL journalism" - Ralee Bankston

"The writing of Crosscut's team is sterling." - Joyce Pugh

It’s kind words like that, and donations from folks like you, that keep this place running. And it’s not too late to contribute if you haven’t already! Amazing as that total is, we fell $5,000 short of our goal. You can still get us there if you make a contribution today.

For those of you who have given, we thank you. For those who haven’t yet, why wait? We'll make sure this money goes to supporting the stories and writers you love.

With gratitude,

The Crosscut Team


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.
