Crystal A. Proxmire  FERNDALE, MI
In 2009 the oc115 started with one reporter, one city, and a dream to improve the state of community journalism.

That dream has grown into a publication serving 55,000 readers and growing.  We’re doing work in multiple cities, winning investigative reporting awards, and helping Oakland County be more informed, inspire and united.

Now we have an incredible opportunity.  We’ve acquired the rights and the domain name that will give us the kind of name that a news organization should have.  With your help the oc115 is growing into Oakland County Times.

This is the time to put the community efforts behind taking this project to the next level.  Help oc115 spring into the Times! 

With a solid base of funding we can:

~strategically use freelance reporters to bridge gaps in coverage

~give increased coverage to more cities

~have better marketing materials

~and have a dedicated part time event page coordinator to make sure more organizations can be part of our listings.

We also have advertising sponsorships available.  Check out for that information.

1/15 of the way to making the goal for a year's worth of funding. Please help support local journalism by sharing this fundraiser with your friends, family, co-workers, hairdressers, enemies and strangers. :) I'll be updating flowers in the online garden later this week. Would love to add some new names! Thanks everyone!
