The Daily Yonder is the only national news organization focused exclusively on serving America’s rural communities. If you value the rural journalism and small-town stories we provide, we hope you’ll support our newsroom today. Donations from readers like you make the work of our nonprofit newsroom possible.

The Daily Yonder is a project of the Center for Rural Strategies, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Gifts may be tax deductible; consult a tax adviser for more information.

Until December 31, Every Dollar You Give Is Matched

As part of the NewsMatch campaign supporting nonprofit newsrooms around the world, every dollar you give to the Daily Yonder from November 1 through December 31, 2022 is eligible to be matched.

Give today and your donation goes three times as far. There’s no better time of year to support the Daily Yonder and its unmatched rural reporting and storytelling. Donate now.

Note, contributions from individuals are eligible to be matched up to $1,000 per donor from November 1 to December 31, 2022, to a combined total of at least $15,000, through the NewsMatch national-matching program. The Daily Yonder has been selected to receive an additional $15,000 in matching funds from NewsMatch for its dedication to providing coverage of rural Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and highlighting issues that impact residents’ lives and support civic engagement. These matching funds run concurrently, which means every dollar we raise, up to $15,000, is matched twice. Monthly recurring donations are matched at the 12-month value of the donation, up to $1,000. For more details about eligibility see NewsMatch guidelines.
