Hidden City Campaign Passes Halfway Point On Way To $30,000

December 8, 2016 |  by  |  Buzz  | 

 

Your Hidden City Daily co-editors, clockwise, Michael Bixler, Nathaniel Popkin, Bradley Maule, and Peter Woodall

Including off-line donations, as of today, December 8, 2016, about 145 readers of the Hidden City Daily and supporters of our tour and event programming have contributed more than $17,000 to our Fall Campaign on Generosity.

With that good news in mind, we still need 180 additional readers to contribute $10, $25, $50, $75, or $100 (or more!) in order to make it to the $30,000 goal. Unless we make that goal, the Hidden City Daily may have to shut down. That’s not an idle threat, but merely a reflection of the uncertain environment for journalism and the utter lack of a sustainable financial model for online publications.

Donate right now, right HERE.

Your contribution fights back against these trends, specifically by paying for top-quality editorial direction, compelling reporting, and extraordinary photography. Look at the stories on our homepage and you’ll see evidence of all of this, produced every week, week after week, now for more than five years.

180 people isn’t very many. Will you be one of them? If so, you’ll have taken a step to protect smart, thoughtful discourse about Philadelphia.

Donate today!
