Thanks to strong support from our amazing readers
As the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism approaches our ninth year of publication, it is gratifying in the extreme to see the support from our many readers continue to grow. In early November, we began our latest holiday fundraiser with two goals: 1) raise $15,000 in individual donations of up to $1,000 to be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Institute for Nonprofit News and the Miami Foundation, and 2) raise $50,000 overall.
Today, I am happy to report that we reached both goals—and actually surpassed the second—meaning we just had our most successful fundraiser ever.
And I wanted you, our readers and supporters, to understand what that means. It means BINJ is not only going to meet our planned 2024 budget target, but also has a chance to surpass it. Which is a strong signal to us that we may be able to produce even more solid journalism about matters of import in Massachusetts over the coming year than we were expecting to … an exciting prospect indeed from our vantage point.
So, on behalf of the entire BINJ crew, thanks very much to all of you that dug deep and donated to our nonprofit organization in 2023. And further thanks to everyone that takes the time to sign up for our regular bulletins and reads our content week to week. We’ll continue to work hard to get you all independent news and views you can use in the new year, all while helping to train the next generation of journalists to follow in our footsteps.
We hope you all have a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.
