Streetsblog Needs Your Help

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.donation button

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.

Thank You Bay Area!

Over the weekend, we received word that the craigslist Charitable Fund had awarded Streetsblog SF a $25,000 grant to help with 2021, raising our total for the drive to $45,685. While this is just under our goal, it's enough to assure that Streetsblog San Francisco will continue to publish for all of 2021 assuming our advertising income remains steady.

Thank You for Supporting Streetsblog San Francisco

Our June fundraising campaign has come to a close, and I want to thank each one of you who donated to Streetsblog San Francisco. While we didn’t quite hit our $25,000 goal, we did raise $18,000, and that’s a cause for celebration. Thank you! Thanks to the generous support of PUBLIC Bikes, I’m thrilled to […]
