Over the years, our readers often have asked us how they can support TheBurg. They love TheBurg and want to ensure that we continue to publish, despite the tremendous financial struggles of journalism today. Indeed, it is very expensive to put out a high-quality community magazine each month, one with exclusively local and original content and design.
In the past, we only could tell our readers to encourage businesses to take out ads with us since, as a free publication, we’ve been completely dependent on advertising for revenue. Now, though, we have developed a way for individual readers to support us.
Through this “donation” button, you may make a contribution to ensure the future of this important community asset. We hope you will consider a donation of at least $5 per issue, but you can contribute anything you like. If you make a contribution of $100 or more, we will gladly mail you an issue of TheBurg for 12 months. For an annual contribution of $500 or more, you’ll have the opportunity to share a dinner for two with our publisher.
With your support, we will be able to continue our mission of representing our dynamic community fairly and accurately, with the highest quality journalism and design. Together, we will be able to ensure that TheBurg will remain a unifying, progressive force for greater Harrisburg for many years to come.
