Decaturish is headed towards a historic milestone.
This site is 17 people away from having 1,000 paying supporters. Our readers — who pay as little as $3 a month to Decaturish — support all of the work you see here, including diligent coverage of local meetings, amazing photography and in-depth investigative reporting. In the last two months, we have poured time and energy into covering the two most important local stories happening right now: the COVID-19 pandemic and local elections. All the while, we have continued our daily beat reporting about the stories that matter to you.
The money you provide goes toward keeping you informed and keeping our news from going behind a paywall. Your support ensures that our journalism remains free to the entire community, including people who can’t afford to sign up. Supporters have access to exclusive deals, tickets to local events and a monthly report from the editor containing the highlights of our recent work and behind-the-scenes insights into our operation. Your contributions will allow us to expand these offerings and broaden our overall reach.
We have plenty of work to do. There are numerous pockets of our county that are underserved by local media or not served at all. We want to be here for those communities. To do that, we need more writers going to more meetings and events. And to do that, we need the support of readers like you.
Decaturish started as a humble blog in 2013. It has evolved into a go-to news source for our community. I’m proud of that and proud of the work we produce every single day. Being in the local news business at this time is not easy. Advertising revenue isn’t what it used to be and the surge in readership has kept us working 12 hour days. But we’re confident that your support will help us weather the storm and put us on a path toward sustainability for many years to come.
So if you read us daily and enjoy what we do but haven’t signed up to become a supporter, now’s your chance to help us reach the next milestone and help us secure our future as a viable local news outlet. This work is important and we can’t do it alone. To become a Decaturish supporter, click here.
