Tax-deductible donations helps fund a professional staff of journalists who focus on investigative and explanatory reporting to help inform the community about important public issues. The strength of any nonprofit organization lies in the support of community members through their donations and gifts.

Membership Program

You are able to make donations on a one-time, renewing monthly, or renewing annually basis.

Membership levels are calculated based on annual levels. So for example if you decide to donate $10 per month, you’ll be on the $120+ annual level and receive our monthly member newsletter, and invitations to member coffees with our staff.

If you were a subscriber before June 1, 2016, you will automatically become a founding member. If you pay your subscription monthly, your payment will become tax deductible effective June 1, 2016. Subscribers with pre-paid annual subscriptions will also become founding members. But you will not be able to deduct the annual payment from your taxes if you made it prior to June 1, 2016. Once you renew as a member, your contributions are tax deductible.

If you have any questions about membership levels, check out our FAQ page or contact us at membership@civilbeat.org.
