Local, nonprofit news depends on YOU.

As communities continue to see their local newsrooms systematically gutted by corporate owners — including the Marblehead Reporter, now owned and regionalized by news giant Gannett — startup news organizations looking to shift this alarming trend have increasingly chosen the nonprofit approach*.

The Marblehead Current is one such organization. Our tagline (“news for people, not for profit”), belies our commitment to delivering the fair, professional-level news Marblehead has come to expect without lining our own pockets. Like a library, our nonprofit newspaper is a public service.

Our revenue comes from advertising, grants and donations. Can you pledge $50 today – one dollar for every issue we print during a year?

You can donate online or contribute by check. Please make checks out to: Marblehead News Group, 217 Humphrey Street, Marblehead, MA 01945. We also accepts gifts of stock, which can reduce your capital gains and income taxes. Email for details: kwhorf@marbleheadnews.org.

Marblehead News Group, the organization that publishes the Current, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions to MNG are tax deductible under federal and state laws.
