Gift acceptance policy

The Lansing Journal is a free newspaper because we want everyone to have equal access to the news we report. But there are costs involved with reporting, publishing, and delivering news, so we rely on advertising revenue and reader support to keep the news free for everyone.

We welcome gifts of any size, and our supporters understand that those gifts do not buy editorial influence or coverage. No matter who contributes money to The Lansing Journal, we report news that is important for our community, and we will make sure it is balanced and accurate.

If you want to join our family of supporters — people who understand the importance of having an independent source of local news — we welcome your support.
