Local news needs local support

Now more than ever it’s important for communities like ours to have a source of news that is relevant and local. Stories reported by local journalists who attend local Board meetings and shop in local businesses. Stories about all those “small,” everyday, local events that larger media aren’t interested in covering.

Just like local restaurants, local hardware stores, and local flower shops, this local newspaper needs local patronage. Investment from readers enables us to report, publish, and deliver local news that keeps our community informed and connected.


When you give to The Lansing Journal, every dollar supports the journalism. Your contributions cover the costs of reporting, publishing, and delivering local news every single day — award-winning local news!
