Happy #GivingNewsDay to our current donors!

These days I often experience a surreal feeling when I’m out and about in the community monitoring poll sites, attending public meetings or simply walking my dog at the Sundial Bridge. I haven't gotten used to it yet but I really love how many of you have come up to ask, “You’re Scout, right?!”

Becoming “Scout,” the public face of our local news organization, has been a life-changing journey. Over the last year and a half, I’ve been integral to almost every part of the work at Shasta Scout. On a single day, I usually wear half a dozen or more different newsroom hats as I multitask to keep this one-woman news show running. 

I’m not alone in the hustle. This is the work. 

As all entrepreneurs know success starts with sheer effort and energy and passion and persistence and success continues only if you can surround yourself with a community that shares your vision and will support the work. Just like you have. 

Your decision to donate to Shasta Scout  has kept independent, non-partisan news free for our entire community. It's also show support for me, Scout, the one-woman news show ready to bring on a staff member or two in the year ahead.

Your support really has meant the world to me. Thank you for investing in your community. 

Today we’re officially launching our NewsMatch campaign in an effort to raise $38,000 for Shasta Scout through reader donations and matching funds. Through NewsMatch, all donations up to $1,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar until the end of the year (even your exiting recurring donations). It’s a big opportunity for our small team!

Supporters like you are our best advocates. We'd love for you to help us spread the word! Tell your friends, forward this email and share our campaign on social media to help boost our reach.

If you’d like to make an additional donation on top of your exiting recurring membership, you can do so at anytime here. And if you’re not already a recurring member, now is the time to consider it! All new monthly donations are being matched twelve times, instantly turning your new $10 monthly donation into $120 for Shasta Scout. You can become a member here.

We’re in the crucial second year at Shasta Scout with a roadmap in place for significant and sustainable growth in the next year. I’m ready to get to work on this vision but I can’t do it all alone. 

Thank you for your very generous support, both in the past and in the future. 

We’re all in this together,
