Until December 31, Every Dollar You Give Is Matched

If you give today, your donation to the Daily Yonder can go two or three times further, thanks to two matching-gift programs.

The Joe and Helen Pickering Challenge will match each individual donation, up to a total of $10,000. The matching campaign honors Joe and Helen Pickering, long-time supporters of the Daily Yonder. The campaign is funded by Joe and Helen’s daughter, Mimi Pickering, and son-in-law Dee Davis. Dee is publisher of the Daily Yonder and president of the Center for Rural Strategies, the nonprofit that publishes the Daily Yonder. 

The NewsMatch campaign will also match contributions dollar for dollar from November 1 to December 31, 2021.  The program supports nonprofit newsrooms around the world. 

There’s no better time to support the Daily Yonder and its unmatched rural reporting and storytelling. Donate now.

As part of the NewsMatch campaign, contributions from individuals are eligible to be matched up to $1,000 per individual from November 1 to December 31, 2021, to a combined total of at least $15,000. The Daily Yonder is a project of the Center for Rural Strategies, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Gifts may be tax deductible; consult your tax adviser for more information.
