East Lansing Info, your dedicated, local, nonprofit news service is in the midst of its 2021 Sustainability Campaign. We need your help to raise $200,000 to make sure that this valuable investigative news service keeps running next year.
No one else brings you the kind of in-depth reporting focused on East Lansing like we do! Just yesterday, our team reported on the Center City District bond refinancing, brought three more “Spend Locally” features on Saper Galleries, Flat Black & Circular, and Blue Owl Coffee, and brought you news of furloughed MSU students looking for jobs in town.
We bring it for you!
