An anonymous friend has agreed to give The Lansing Journal $100 for each new monthly supporter who signs up before year-end, up to 25 monthly donors.

Monthly support is so important to this community newspaper. Those monthly gifts allow us to plan with confidence. And the administrative costs are lower too, so we can focus on news instead of bookkeeping.

This is a big opportunity for The Lansing Journal. With this matching gift in place, not only will your monthly support help us continue the local reporting we do, BUT ALSO the extra $100 will help fund our coverage too.

If you appreciate all the local coverage we provide, and you’ve been thinking about becoming a supporter, now is a good time. Your decision will be matched with $100 today.

What your monthly gifts accomplish

Your gift at any level helps ensure that we can report, publish, and deliver local news every day. And when you agree to give monthly, you provide a reliable source of income that helps us plan our news coverage.

We run a lean business, and every dollar you give goes directly into the journalism. Your gifts pay our reporters. Your gifts keep our website live. Your gifts send an email each morning filled with new articles about what’s happening in town.

And it’s so important to know what’s happening in town! So much news happens every day — news that impacts tax-paying residents and their families. News that even former residents depend on.

The month is only half over, and already The Lansing Journal has published:

  • A comprehensive list of local holiday activities
  • Obituaries for 17 members of our community
  • Wrestling, girls basketball, boys basketball, bowling, and swimming results from TF South
  • Agendas and meeting times for the Village Board, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the District 215 and 158 School Boards — people who make decisions about how our tax dollars are spent
  • Major stories about a manhunt in Lansing and the demolition of a historic building

That’s the kind of coverage your monthly support helps provide.

Reader support is what keeps this community newspaper going. Readers who understand how important it is to have a source of information that is balanced, reliable, and local.
