2017 Subscription and Sponsorship Drive – Ending Monthly Fundraising Pitches

The Vanguard is a non-profit organization that runs a news site out Davis and. is pushing to expand a court watch program into Sacramento and San Francisco.  In 2016, the Vanguard had a monthly operating budget of $5000 plus additional costs.
Our goals for 2017 include:
  • Full time office staffer – right now we have a part time office assistant
  • Full time Yolo Court Watch reporter
  • Full time Sacramento Court Watch reporter
  • Full Salary for Executive Director (currently he makes $1500 a month)
  • A Sac/ Yolo Court Watch Supervisor
Each position would add about $3000 to $5000 per month to the ongoing costs
Currently we bring in about $1500 a month in ongoing revenue which means we have to raise around $3500 just to pay minimum costs.
We have a sliding scale level of support: Sustaining Members
