Dear Readers,

This week we kick off our Spring Fundraising Campaign to raise $50,000 to support GCM’s local community journalism. The professional reporting and coverage that you rely on week in and week out from Austin Weekly News. You rely on us because we’ve got YOU covered—in ways that no other news source does. 

Austin Weekly News reporters and partners are covering YOUR homes, blocks and parks, YOUR local schools and government decision-making, YOUR local shopping and dining haunts, YOUR local civic organizations and houses of worship. We are hosting conversations YOU are passionate about in our pages and emails and on our social media.

We believe that this coverage and these conversations ensure continued vitality in our shared community. And continuing this coverage and these conversations needs YOUR support.  We rely on YOUR donations to generate over 25% of our operating budget, to allow us the continued privilege of providing quality news coverage of the stories that animate our community.

Strengthen our shared community today with YOUR donation to support Austin Weekly News coverage and the professional journalists on the ground reporting it.

Thank you for your continued trust and support,

Michael Romain and the Austin Weekly News Team
