Generous 2020 NewsMatch Opportunity Enhances Your Gift to The Bedford Citizen

We need your support during The Bedford Citizen’s final fundraising drive of the year.  Starting November 1 and through December 31, any donations we receive will be doubled, up to $11,500, by NewsMatch.  Your generosity will be amplified – and our appreciation will be boundless!

The Bedford Citizen’s membership in the prestigious Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) makes it eligible to participate in NewsMatch, a national matching-gift campaign that drives donations to nonprofit newsrooms in communities across America. NewsMatch believes, as we do, that local journalism informs, matters, and is definitely worth supporting.

The Bedford Citizen has worked hard this year, in particular, to stay abreast of breaking news about the pandemic and its effects locally, helping readers to prepare for everything from school closings to delays of Town Meeting.  The Citizen has continued to cover key town committees and boards and their actions and meet the obligations of its core mission: to promote informed citizen participation.  Whether it’s a protest or a vigil on the Town Common, showcasing the Class of 2020, or keeping you up to date on what restaurants are open, closed, or serving out of doors, we have kept our eye on the town beat so readers have reliable information as quickly as we can get it to you.

If this has been valuable for you, we ask that you make a donation between November 1 and December 31 and let NewsMatch double the amount on your behalf.  This is our “last ask” for 2020 (no, not forever!) and will ensure that we can continue to bring you reliable, objective online news about the busy and vibrant community we all want to see thrive.  We extend our sincere thanks to each and every donor.  We deeply appreciate your loyalty and support.

You can hit the DONATE button below and make a one-time donation or become a sustainer with regular monthly gifts.  Checks may be sent to The Bedford Citizen, PO Box 212, Bedford, MA 01730.  The Bedford Citizen is a 501(c)3 corporation and all donations are tax-exempt to the extent allowed by law.
