You’re Making Us GO! Thank You for Helping Us Reach Our July 1 Goal


Last month, we made an urgent appeal for your support because the future of Streetsblog San Francisco was in jeopardy. I’m happy to announce today that readers, advocates and business leaders responded, and we met our July 1 goal!  Your contributions will keep Streetsblog SF moving forward in 2010.

Our work is far from over, however. We need to build an ongoing funding base that will sustain Streetsblog SF over time and position us to expand our scope and impact.

We still need you to help Streetsblog SF keep moving forward in 2010 and beyond.

When we began a year and a half ago, we were lucky to have some generous start-up funding that allowed us to get reporters in the field, focus on content, and begin building this strong community of readers and commenters who have made the blog so vital to the sustainable transportation movement in the Bay Area. We now reach more than 60,000 monthly readers with key ideas and information that helps shape the narrative on local, national, and global livable streets issues.

We were honored to receive the Golden Wheel Award from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition recently.

You have helped make Streetsblog SF the critical forum for sustainable transportation in the Bay Area, and we need your support to keep us going.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation today.

Your donation will help ensure we can increase coverage of transit, bicycling, pedestrian safety, and sustainable development not just in San Francisco, but in Oakland, San Jose and Sacramento.

If you already made a donation this year, thank you. If you haven’t yet, please give today so we can continue to help shape the narrative on sustainable transportation issues in the Bay Area and throughout California.
