About 10 days ago, I wrote about the launch of the Chicago Independent Media Alliance’s month-long #SaveChicagoMedia campaign, a joint fundraising effort by 43 fantastic newspapers, radio stations, podcasts, email newsletters, websites and more.
Thanks to all of you, the campaign has raised $23,000 of our $40,000 minimum goal, and we still have two weeks to go! Why $40,000? Because that’s the amount being generously matched by foundations. Cue ugly crying.
Along with that update, I wanted to give a shout-out to the Chicago Independent Media Alliance (CIMA) partners that Rebellious has the privilege to be working alongside. Their hardworking journalists are covering nearly every community you can imagine in more languages than I can count, and the city wouldn’t be the same without them.
When you visit savechicagomedia.org by June 5, and you can either donate to all 43 media outlets or donate to just a few of us. So far, the vast majority of donors have chosen to support all of us. We love you back, Chicago. More than I can say.
