Change Reporting Fund

Support local reporting on environmental, health,
economic and social justice issues impacted by climate change
with your tax-deductible contribution

(Olivia Vanni / The Herald )

Our community needs reliable and independently gathered information about the environment and climate that can help us all make decisions and take action.

To help shed light on the impact to our local environment, economy, and health brought about by climate change, The Daily Herald established the Environmental and Climate Change Reporting Fund in September 2020.

Since then, community contributions to the fund have helped The Daily Herald increase its coverage on these important topics – but we need ongoing support.

Help us raise $325,000 so we can dedicate more resources to report on environmental and climate change issues.

The Daily Herald maintains editorial control over content produced with fund resources.
