As of this morning, we have raised $1,320 towards our $5,000 fundraising goal! We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our donors—each one of you is directly helping to keep a local publication alive.
We’d also like to extend a thank you to all of our new Patreon supporters. All of you are making a valuable contribution that will continue to help us, both now and in the future.
The fight isn’t over yet! For Scout to remain open past this week, we need to raise a total of $5,000. This will pay staff and keep the websites online. We’ve been operating on a thin margin for a while, but this has turned into a make-it-or-break-it moment for us.
We are grateful for Cambridge Local First, and its executive director Theodroa Skeadas, who have been instrumental in helping us and other small businesses throughout this time. CLF has generously allowed us to use their website for our landing page for donations.
Send all news tips to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to continue to support small businesses through this, and to continue to amplify their fundraising efforts as well.
