This year’s Giving Tuesday is serving as the kickoff of our End of the Year fundraising drive for all the Streetsblogs in California. Streetsblog San Francisco raises about half of its annual revenue from small-reader donations and we hope this year is no different. This year, we canceled many of our fundraising events because of COVID 19 but are hoping to make up the difference in the next 31 days and raise $25,000 in support of Streetsblog San Francisco and another $25,000 across the rest of the state to support Streetsblog LA and California.
If you are already sold and want to make a tax-deductible donation to Streetsblog SF, just click here to make a donation online or get information on how to send a check. If you need more information for an employer match program or anything else, email me at email@example.com.
When I wrote to you last year on Giving Tuesday, we were encouraged by the promise of 2020. Better Market Street was moving off the books and onto the street, Jeff Tumlin was just installed as the head of Muni, and San Jose’s bike facilities were featured in an eye-popping review that heralded good things coming in the Peninsula.
Well, 2020 didn’t exactly turn out as planned for the Bay Area or anywhere else in the world. However, Streetsblog's brand of solutions journalism still played a role in many of the biggest stories of the year by informing and empowering readers, amplifying voices, and holding political leaders to account when their actions and votes don’t live up to their words.
In the coming weeks, you’ll be hearing from non-profit leaders, political leaders, and more from the Streetsblog SF team on how the work that Streetsblog SF does helped make San Francisco and the entire Bay Area a better place to live, work and play.
Again, we can’t do it without your support and we hope you’ll consider a donation to Streetsblog San Francisco at the end of the year.
