Why give monthly to the Chico News & Review?
Even before the coronavirus crisis, many local news publishers were financially struggling. Yet the CN&R, with the steady, loyal support of readers, was holding its own.
Then, last spring, the pandemic struck. The crisis forced the CN&R to suspend print publication and the loss of revenue threatened our ability to provide coverage of our community.
But with the help of readers and loyal advertisers, we persevered. We re-started the print newspaper in July (we’ve kept the online site live and updated throughout the pandemic), and we hope to move from a monthly newspaper to every-other week, and eventually weekly, as soon as we can.
To do that, though, we need your ongoing support. Advertising revenue alone won’t cover the costs of reporting, editing, photography, printing and distributing the newspaper. We need readers like you, who rely on the CN&R, to support it. By choosing to make a recurring donation every month, you are helping to provide stable, sustainable resources that help the CN&R to plan for consistent local news coverage.
As Chico begins to re-open and life returns to a “new normal,” you can count on the CN&R to cover it. We’re your source for news on the returning arts scene, pandemic recovery efforts, efforts to address homelessness, and what you need to know about the risk of wildfires in our community.
You can rely on us, and we rely on you. If the CN&R is important to you, we need your support. Your monthly donation ensures that our reporters and editors can continue to spark community dialogue, cover the arts, spotlight important issues, and speak truth to power — as we’ve done in Chico since 1977. Thank you for reading and believing in the importance of local news.
Thank you to our supporters
Help us continue reporting on important issues
The Chico News & Review wants to ensure that our team of dedicated journalists can continue working through one of the worst economic and health crises of the past century. Even a $10 monthly, recurring donation will help the CN&R continue its award-winning coverage on the topics that impact our community:
COVID-19: Public health and economic sustainability
We will continue to monitor health care response to the pandemic, push for science-based safety measures, and track the economic effects of shutdown and recovery solutions for local businesses.
Return of the arts
We will shine a spotlight on the artists and performers whose industry will be in pandemic darkness longer than most, providing a stage until it’s safe for the shows to go on again.
We will be watchdogs for the most vulnerable among us as we explore solutions to the lack of affordable housing and sufficient addiction and mental-health services in our community.
We will track police reform, racial justice and LGBTQ rights to help ensure equal rights for all.
We will continue to give voice to Camp Fire survivors in their recovery, and take a forward look at how the community will prepare for the fires that are sure to come.
