On Nov. 1 we announced that we had been accepted into an end-of-year donation matching program called NewsMatch. The parameters were simple — if we could raise $25,000 on our own through the last two months of 2018, NewsMatch would write us a check for $25,000.
We’re pleased to announce that thanks to your help, we hit the $25,000 mark.
That’s meaningful in a number of ways, the most obvious of which is that quite simply it helps us keep the lights on so we can keep producing the same journalism you’ve come to expect.
But just as importantly, your commitment to The Frontier shows other potential donors that we’re worth funding, a not-insignificant thing for a small outlet heading into its third full year as a non-profit.
So what happens now, you ask? The donation match was great, but like all journalists, we’re looking ahead. Our fundraising goal this year — like every year — is to continue to grow our donor base. That means that in addition to new donors, we need your continued support as we move through 2019 and to the years beyond.

To all of our donors, thank you for believing in us and in the power of watchdog journalism.
