Support local Independent Journalism

We urgently need your support to keep reporting

The SN&R wants to keep our team of dedicated journalists working through one of the worst economic and health crises of the past century. Please consider giving a recurring donation to support the SN&R’s ongoing commitment to coverage. Even a $10 monthly, recurring donation will help us continue to provide award-winning coverage of the Sacramento region.

Donation Total: $10.00 Monthly

These donations are not tax deductible. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to our nonprofit fund, the Independent Journalism Fund, please click here.


Journalism can no longer be supported with advertising revenue alone; newspapers across the country have stopped publishing or laid off staff.

Credible, vetted journalism is necessary for the functioning of a democracy. SN&R has supported community dialogue, spotlighted important issues, spoken truth to power and covered the arts in Sacramento since 1989.

We have always been committed to keeping our print and digital content free, and we need your help to continue. Your support goes to directly fund our reporters and support staff who are tirelessly working to ensure that local coverage of Sacramento can continue.

While daily papers across the country have lost readers at a dramatic rate over the last ten years, our audience has remained steady. With your support, the SN&R can return in some form. We are exploring options that include partnerships or conversion to a nonprofit. If you have ideas or would like to help, please email us.

Meanwhile, our editorial staff continues to report on our community during these uncertain times. Your support directly funds their work.

Commitment to Our Five Coverage Topics

1. The COVID-19 pandemic

We will continue to track the public health response and watch out for racial disparities and vulnerable populations, including the unhoused.

2. Economic recovery

We will cover the unemployed and workers and small, locally-owned businesses, including government assistance efforts.

3. Police reform

We will monitor the police reform and Defund the Police debates–and the broader reckoning on race–and give a forum to diverse voices.

4. Environmental threats

We will continue to cover the future of our region’s ecology, including reporting on the Delta, catastrophic wildfires, and issues affecting climate change.

5. Arts and entertainment

We will chronicle the efforts to safely reopen local venues, while continuing to lift up local artists and musicians.

Thx for another local reporting voice! I would like to see a series on recycling – where is it going these days? Refill Madness says they have a place they take plastic to that they know is recycling it. What is the scavenging recycling industry like – where do the people who pick from recycling bins take it to in the city and what is the story behind the older asian people who I see in midtown picking up recycling?
