Help Cedar Mill News update our tech!

Cedar Mill News  runs on a shoestring! We don’t have much in the way of expenses, which makes it possible to continue even though our ad revenue, our only income source, doesn’t really amount to that much. (I want to keep it free for everyone, so paid subscriptions don't work.)

However, we also run on Macintosh and Adobe. I’ve been limping along with a ten-year-old version of Adobe software  and haven't upgraded my operating system because my old software will not run on the newer ones. With your help, dear readers, I would like to buy a new Mac and a new software package.

The new iMac I need is $1500. A year of software is $600. Our goal is to raise $2100 now, and then we’ll probably need to come back each year to renew the software subscription. Or we might set up a Patreon for voluntary ongoing support. Our GoFundMe is for $2200 to cover the deductions.

If you value the work we do, please consider donating what you can. I’ll be able to devote more time to research and less to waiting for my computer! And we’ll be able to continue to bring you our local, relevant, useful news and information with less frustration!
