Quality journalism is worth paying for and even though the Voice of OC is free to read online and accepts no advertisements, it needs donations to survive.
Time to open your checkbooks or get out your credit cards and make a donation.
Here’s the email that came in:
Since Voice of OC was founded 10 years ago we have prioritized transparency and integrity. We exist to bring you fair, focused and thorough journalism on quality of life and arts issues for Orange County communities.
This is the type of journalism that cannot wait. If we don’t tell these stories, who will?
That’s why I’m excited to share an opportunity to triple your donation. Voice of OC has once again been selected to participate in NewsMatch, a national matching-gift campaign that drives donations to nonprofit newsrooms across the nation. We also have a local match this year to maximize your donation.
Starting now, NewsMatch and our local fund will match your new monthly donation 12x or triple your one-time gift, all up to $1,000. People who already give each month can give an additional one-time gift that will be tripled.
- Each person who gives during NewsMatch 2019 and enters a mailing address will be sent a special-edition silver Voice of OC enamel pin.
- If you give at least $20 as a recurring monthly donation, you will receive a New York Times one-year digital subscription code.
- You can join the exclusive ambassador’s program (including invitations to special events) for $1,000 every year or $84 every month.
With your support, Voice of OC can earn up to $40,000 in matching dollars.
For a nonprofit like ours, this is a big deal and will help us deliver and expand the kind of innovative and community-focused journalism you’ve come to expect from us every day.
This news can’t wait. The time is now.
