Help Northwest Passages turn #GivingTuesday into #GivingNewsDay

From staff reports

The staff at The Spokesman-Review wishes to say thank you to all who have attended Northwest Passages Book Club gatherings, political forums and the amazing events we’ve hosted in 2019. We also remain eternally grateful to those who have opened their checkbooks to support local journalism in the Inland Northwest. We could not do what we do without you.

That’s why today, on #GivingTuesday, we hope you might consider making an additional donation in support of a free press.

You may have heard that The Spokesman-Review has won grant support from Report for America for two new government reporters, one based in Olympia and the other in Washington, D.C. It’s great news and we’re excited about being able to bring a robust government report to our readers. (You can read more about it here.)

To make these positions happen, we need your help. Report for America agrees to pay half of these reporters’ salaries. We have to come up with the rest.

You can help us reach our fundraising goal with a donation to the Community Journalism and Civic Engagement Fund through the Innovia Foundation. Click on the donation button below, or right here to make an online contribution. Or, call Spokesman-Review editor Rob Curley at (509) 459-5030 and make arrangements.

Thanks again for helping turn #GivingTuesday into #GivingNewsDay! And thank you for continuing to support community journalism!
