You can make the pop-ups go away

Every day I have the privilege of working with the top reporters in our region. They come to Crosscut to do their best work, and to make an impact. They're only able to do so with the support of readers like you.

And this week, they’re waiting with bated breath for the headline all of us want to see on Friday: "It’s over! Crosscut Spring Member Drive meets goal!"

The ads would come down. The request for donations that pops up every time you visit the site would go back into hibernation. And I’d finish writing 400 thank you letters.

Our reporters on the other hand would be ramping up. Meeting our goal of $60,000 doesn’t just keep the lights on. It keeps our editorial team digging, hunting down the stories you need to hear, and asking the questions the questions you need to have answered.

Help us publish that headline. Make a gift to grow Crosscut’s slice of the pie today.

Maximize the impact of your gift by registering this week as a monthly, sustaining member. Supporter Mike Humphries will match your entire donation instantly. Hurry, there are 34 matches left!



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.
