An anonymous Hidden City benefactor has offered $10,000 in support of our in-depth coverage of Philadelphia’s rapidly changing built environment, providing a dollar-for-dollar match until the end of the campaign on December 31. We’re thrilled, of course: This is the largest private donation we’ve received for our non-profit journalism. But the stakes are high and we’re counting on you.

Give now to support in-depth coverage of Philadelphia’s changing built environment and double the money!

You may have noticed: recently we’ve been working hard to deliver focused and timely news and analysis on on preservation, public space, and real estate development. If this gift is matched we’ll be able accelerate this work, keeping you informed and aware, but also helping you to understand what’s at stake. At Hidden City we give you context and depth of observation you won’t receive elsewhere.
