Carolina Public Press Spring Fundraiser This Week

Carolina Public Press Kicks off its Spring Fundraiser TODAY with only one week to raise its goal of $7,000.

There has never been a greater need to strengthen independent, in-depth and investigative journalism. Thanks to reader support the publication was able to invest more than 3,000 hours last year to report Western North Carolina's most important issues - work that earned two statewide and regional awards. Today, Carolina Public Press is the only news organization in WNC with a journalist in Raleigh covering the legislature.

Now YOUR help is needed. Help raise $7,000 by Saturday. New and increased gifts will be DOUBLED. Your donations will be helping build fact-based and content-rich journalism in Western North Carolina.

Carolina Public Press is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit online news service providing Western North Carolina with unbiased, in-depth and investigative news as well as educational opportunities. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
