Make an even bigger difference with local news:
DOUBLE your impact in November and December!

Dollar match fundraiser for Salish Current

The dollars you give to support journalism that is always free—free to read, free of advertising—will be matched by generous local supporters and national NewsMatch funders during November and December.

Give what you can—consider a monthly donation—and help turn $32,000 into $64,000 that will go directly to provide fact-based, nonpartisan news for Whatcom, San Juan and Skagit counties. 

As always, donations pay for independent reporting that gives information and context on issues and events that are important to our community.

And a successful campaign this year will enable Salish Current to move forward with our business plan to hire one full-time staff person in 2023, and increase our news coverage, develop more community partnerships and increase readership.

Donate what you can … and please keep liking, sharing and linking to us on social media or from your website!
