In 2024, please consider becoming an active member of Gazette Chicago and help keep award-winning community journalism thriving in our neighborhoods. We sincerely appreciate your partnership.
“As you can see from the quantity of our print pages over the past year, advertising revenue alone is not enough to sustain our efforts,” said Mark J. Valentino, editor and publisher. “We need you to play a significant role in our future—so that we can continue to publish quality journalism that makes a difference in the lives of our residents. Please note that many other local and national media outlets are seeking financial partnerships with their readers in a similar fashion. These partnerships will be critical to the lifeblood of community journalism in Chicago and across the country.”
Readers and businesses can make a direct, non-tax deductible contribution to Gazette Chicago (these must be called “contributions” not “donations”) by writing a check made out to Gazette Chicago and sending it to 1335 W. Harrison St., Chicago, IL 60607. As Gazette Chicago is not a charitable organization, contributions are not tax-deductible but are crucial in the effort to save local journalism in our local communities.
“In an era in which community media publications (not all are legacy media) are disappearing quite rapidly across the country, Gazette Chicago is asking you to partner with us as we continue to work for your interests by covering the news fairly and independently; investigating the issues that impact your lives; covering local, statewide, and national political campaigns; and making critical endorsements in these races,” Valentino noted.
“Our journalists are among the best in all of Chicago, and the stories that you read on our pages rival those of Chicago’s dailies and other news organizations,” Valentino added.
Each donation, or contribution, will make a difference in Gazette Chicago’s ability to move forward —no gift is too large or too small.
“Know that your support will have a great impact on journalism in our ten communities,” Valentino said.
