We’re in the last week of our annual fundraising appeal and our focus on the blog all week is going to be on getting as much support as we can for our campaign, which ends Friday.
When we launched our campaign in January, we knew our goal (to raise $10,000) was ambitious. And we're really grateful to all of our donors who have given so far. But we know there are many more of you, our dedicated readers, who read BxNN every day.
$10,000 may not seem like a lot of money for a news organization, but it’s a key part of our bare-bones budget that will allow us to continue doing what we do and build a strong foundation to bring you even more news and information about Bronx neighborhoods.
I have a feeling that some of you reading this don’t consider contributing because you’re reading it as part of your job. You work for a politician or a city agency or a newspaper, TV station or website. So why should you pay for news that helps you do your job?
Well, because it helps you do your job.
And we offer exclusively local Bronx news, unlike the newspaper you buy on your way into work … or the cable station you pay every month to get NY1, CNN, etc.
