Support the people’s paper

The Lansing Journal is powered by reader support

Because of regular people like you, The Lansing Journal can be an independent news source, focused on keeping our community informed and connected.

Any level of giving helps keep this newspaper free and independent. And if you click the box to make it a monthly gift, that gives us an extra level of sustainability.

Your gift at any level helps ensure that we can report, publish, and deliver local news every day. And when you check the box under your amount to make it a monthly gift, you help this local newspaper stay free and independent long-term. Thank you!

What your support means

We want local news to be accessible to everyone, so we keep The Lansing Journal free. Your support means we can cover costs such as:

  • The stipends we pay our freelance reporters
  • Hosting fees to keep our website up and running
  • The price of sending a daily email to thousands of subscribers
  • Basic business expenses — email, internet, business cards, insurance, all the mundane nitty-gritty that gets taken for granted

Your gifts make a difference!
