In the last few months we have broken a number of critical stories and raised important public policy issues as well as housed a number of important local debates.
We have had exciting times moving into new office space and working towards new projects and innovations.
But all of this costs money.
One of the ways we can have month to month certainty is by expanding our base of recurring donors. Don’t get me wrong – donations help greatly and if you prefer to send us a donation either by card (link) or mail (Davis Vanguard, PO Box 4715, Davis, CA 95617) – then please do.
But the advantage of a recurring monthly donation is that each month, we know our starting point for donations and that means when we factor in costs – our staff costs, software costs, equipment costs, server costs, and web maintenance – we can calculate how much we need to raise to pay our bills and obligations.
In the last month we have added to that base, but we are still far short of where we ultimately need to be.
So if you can help at a rate as low as $10 a month, the cost of newspaper subscription or a meal a modest priced restaurant – hit this link and make the commitment today. Be sure to click the “recurring payment” button on the bottom right part of the form.
Or if you prefer Paypal – hit the button
Because if you believe that the Vanguard has value in our community, you want that value to continue.
