While others in the media “pivot to video” in a quest for advertising revenue, we decided to pivot to video to say thanks—to our readers, for having our backs during another year full of challenges for those of us who care about journalism and democracy.

Thank you for everything you do to make Mother Jones what it is.

And speaking of generosity, we figured we’d stop talking about our December fundraising drive for a moment and highlight some of the other amazing independent newsrooms the MoJo community can support.

If you’d like to find a local nonprofit newsroom close to you, or one that focuses on an issue you care about, head over to NewsMatch.org, where you can search for reader-supported organizations that are part of the Institute for Nonprofit News—or scroll through their “Best of Nonprofit News 2018” to see some of the amazing work these shops have done.

Bonus: Many of these newsrooms have a $25,000 matching gift running this month from NewsMatch. We’ve already used our share of the match (thanks to the amazing generosity of MoJo readers!), but for a lot of these smaller but fierce and focused outlets, even just a few gifts from the MoJo community can go a long way. Please check it out today, because there can never be enough independent, quality journalism.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
