Do you value what ELi does for this community – bringing timely and important news of local government and schools, local arts and businesses, Parks & Rec and the East Lansing Public Library, issues of our environment and our people?
Then we need you today!
Today marks the start of NewsMatch, a program that empowers us to obtain a national matching grant that doubles gifts made to ELi!
We are part of NewsMatch because we belong to the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN). INN has arranged funding from a team of national philanthropies, including Democracy Fund and the Knight Foundation.
NewsMatch will match donations made today through Dec. 1 up to $5,000 per individual and up to a total cap of $11,500 this year.
Note that new monthly commitments will be matched at the ANNUAL rate – so make a new commitment of $20/month and that will bring us a $240 match!
Since 2014, ELi’s public service journalism has been brought to you through an IRS-recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, which means that you can tax-deduct contributions to us as charitable donations (to the extent the tax law allows you to make such deductions).
