Today, people all around the world are coming together to strengthen communities at the grassroots level. Will you be one of them? We are one of the participating organizations and we need your help!

By joining the #GivingTuesdayNow movement with us, you’re investing in the idea that communities are stronger with access to local journalism. Our priority is reporting to you, but we can’t do it without the support of our readers.

Here is how you can participate:

1.    Give. Our members donate at all levels—from $5 to $50 a month. Please make a donation here.

2.    Follow. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and invite your friends to do the same.

3.    Spread the word! Encourage your friends and family to join you in creating real impact by sharing what our mission means to you and why you support our organization. Make sure to use hashtags #MSTodayMember and #GivingTuesdayNow. Here are just a few recent examples of what our members have said:

  • “I believe that we can do better and Mississippi Today is a catalyst for that.”
  • “Democracy would be in jeopardy without you all.”
  • “I want more truth tellers in the world. I want to support our local newsrooms.”

Our goal is to break 1,000 members by the end of the day. On this day of giving, I hope you’ll join together with the more than 950 Mississippi Today members who voluntarily pay to support our nonprofit newsroom.

Yes, I’ll set up a monthly donation today!

I’d rather make a yearly donation
I’d rather make a one-time donation

We want to hear from you!

Central to our mission at Mississippi Today is inspiring civic engagement. We think critically about how we can foster healthy dialogue between people who think differently about government and politics. We believe that conversation — raw, earnest talking and listening to better understand each other — is vital to the future of Mississippi. We encourage you to engage with us and each other on our social media accounts, email our reporters directly or leave a comment for our editor by clicking the button below.
