Message to Readers: BxNN Needs Your Help

The Bronx News Network is a nonprofit organization with an exciting mission: to publish and link together nonprofit community newspapers in the Bronx so we can amplify community voices neglected by the city’s press corps and decision-makers from City Hall to Washington.

Building on the success of BxNN flagship the Norwood News, we launched the bi-lingual Mount Hope Monitor in 2006 and in May we launched the bi-lingual Tremont Tribune, the first-ever newspaper to be published for residents of the neighborhoods of Community District 6 (Belmont, Bathgate, West Farms, Tremont and Crotona).

To complete our budget this fiscal year so we can ensure a full year of publishing the Tribune and the continuation of a groundbreaking partnership among 6 nonprofit papers (in addition to our three we provide publishing support to the others like the Hunts Point Express and Mott Haven Herald) we need to raise $15,000 by the end of this month.

Can you help us by making a tax deductible contribution right now?

If all the readers of this blog contributed something -- $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford – and became a member of the Bronx News Network, we’d be well on our way to our goal and be confident that we can maintain and build upon the coverage you’ve become used to on this blog.

Unlike NPR and PBS, and other public radio and TV stations, we can’t commandeer the airwaves to pre-empt regular programming to persuade you to contribute.

In fact, we have a team of reporters out in the field at this very moment covering the polls on this Primary Election Day and preparing stories for the next issues of all three papers. We’re posting their reports and photos throughout the day and evening on this blog.

Help us keep our team out there to cover news that matters to you and provide a critical source of information that, until now, most Bronx neighborhoods have had to do without.

To contribute – and become a charter member of the Bronx News Network -- please just click here or on the PayPal button at the top right of this screen. We’ll keep a daily tally so you can see how we’re doing on meeting our goal.

Thank you very much in advance for you support.
