Across the country, newsrooms are shrinking and disappearing, leaving news deserts and increasing polarization. With your support, we‘ve created a bold plan for the future — one that will create ripples of understanding, hope and lasting change for a new generation of Western leaders. We have five top priorities:
Deeper and more comprehensive coverage of the West
A larger, more engaged audience
Technology that better supports our readers
A way to sustain and develop HCN’s business model
An endowment to secure the future of our intern and fellow program
High Country News turned 50 this year. On June 4, 2021, HCN’s staff and board will join a far-flung community of people who care about the West for a momentous anniversary bash. We hope to see you there.
We’ve already raised $5 million from our own board of directors, major donors, foundations and even former interns. Help take us higher and reach our $10 million goal — for the future of HCN and independent journalism for the West.
