Dear Reader:

 

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to your recent gifts, we’re moving on to the next phase of our fund drive.

For the last month of our year-end campaign, we’re focused on a new matching gift opportunity. Early in 2022, we hope to hire several local reporters and writers to boost our coverage of town affairs and the people who live here.

The next $10,000 that we receive in donations will unlock another $10,000 in matching gifts from eight friends of The News to power this urgent work.

In the last six weeks, we’ve heard from dozens of Charlotte residents in conversations, emails and Front Porch Forum posts. The message is clear:

Charlotters want The News to produce journalism that informs and strengthens our community, that reflects the diverse interests of Charlotte residents, and helps make our town a better place to live.

With your support, we can do this.

Starting now, your tax-deductible gift in any amount will be doubled. This means that we can earn up to $20,000 to help strengthen our community.

If you have not already done so, please join those who have already contributed. We won’t receive the match unless we get the donations.

Give now to double the impact of your contribution. Send a check to The Charlotte News, P.O. Box 251, Charlotte, VT 05445. Or use a credit card and donate today on our secure website.

With gratitude,

Publisher and President
The Charlotte News
