By now I hope you’ve seen that the fourth annual Chicago Independent Media Alliance (CIMA) fundraiser is well underway!

Thank you to everyone who has already given, shared messages on social media and otherwise showed your support. We couldn’t do this without you.

Things are a little different this year: All donations are being evenly split between 47 hardworking CIMA members. That means a gift to us is a gift to all!

And we have exciting news — starting today, June 14, donations will be DOUBLED! I just couldn’t miss this chance to ask for your support directly.

Now through Monday, June 19, you can triple your impact on community media.

Your donation will ensure that dozens of local media outlets can continue to produce investigative stories, highlight Chicago’s vast culture and report local news that matters to you. #PoweringIndependence
