Twice a year, we ask Streetsblog readers throughout California to support Streetsblog through our donor drives. The summer fundraising drive is a little smaller than the end-of-year drive, but is no less crucial to our continued success and publication,

This year, we are aiming to raise $15,000 in July and August in new donations. There are a lot of ways that one can donate to Streetsblog (donate online, mail a check, send us bitcoin, etc…) all of which can be found at our donation portal on the website. Streetsblog is part of the California Streets Initiative, and as such all donations are tax-deductible.


2022 is proving to be another pivotal year for the Bay Area as efforts to tie together Bay Area transit agencies and to continue to build out a regional bicycling network move forward despite efforts to roll back progress in these areas. Roger Rudick has been a loud and consistent voice for safer streets and more efficient transit as the Streetsblog SF editor for the last six and a half years, leaving him uniquely situated to cover these efforts.

This summer’s donor drive is going to feature fun give-aways for both any new donors and anyone that has become a Patreon or monthly donor through Donorbox. Everyone who donates during the drive will receive stickers and giveaways at our upcoming happy hours (look for dates and locations for that in the next week or so). We’ll also be holding virtual raffles for Streetsblog swag, coupons, special deals from the New Wheel e-bike shop, and more.

Donate today and help us reach our goal and stay strong as we head into a crucial fall and winter.
