Support Gazette Chicago and Community Journalism

In an era in which many community newspapers have disappeared and the general media have abandoned much of their neighborhood coverage, Gazette Chicago continues to provide independent, balanced news coverage at no cost to the public in ten of Chicago’s most diverse communities.

 This GoFundMe campaign seeks to support the publication’s hard-working journalists, providing funding to strengthen their reporting. Our independent, award-winning, journalism takes time, money, and hard work to produce. With advertising revenue falling for all publications, Gazette Chicago needs its readers to partner with us to allow us to press forward. If you value independent, free, community journalism—the kind that Gazette Chicago has offered its community for 37 years—then please help make our future more secure.
