Benefits of online monthly giving: #1 – Convenience

For you and for us

LANSING, Ill. (December 19, 2023) – Supporters who check the “monthly” box when they make a gift to The Lansing Journal input their payment information just once, and their support happens automatically on the same date each following month.

They don’t have to set a calendar reminder, or find their wallet again, or sort through the options and make a decision. They go through that process just once. Then each month they receive a thank-you receipt confirming their gift was processed and their favorite newspaper is still delivering.

That kind of convenience is a benefit to The Lansing Journal as well. Because they are automated, those monthly online gifts cost us very little in terms of bookkeeping time. That means we can focus our efforts on our core business: reporting, publishing, and delivering news.

Plus, the Sustainability Match

Right now, through December 31, a Sustainability Match will award The Lansing Journal $100 for each new Monthly Supporter who signs up at any level. Will you sign up for convenient online monthly giving AND help us get that $100 match?

UPDATE: The match was met! Thank you!

An alternate option

Whether or not a matching gift is available, The Lansing Journal depends on reader support in order to keep reporting. You can use the button below to choose a giving level that works for you, and make it a monthly gift if you can:
