WyoFile’s Spring Fund Drive tops $18,000

— May 2, 2014

WyoFile’s Spring Fund Drive has come to a close, and we’re pleased to announce that our generous readers pushed us well beyond our goal of raising $10,000. In support of WyoFile’s brand of fearless journalism, more than 182 individuals donated a total $13,667 during the 2-week fund drive. And since one of our generous donors matched the first $5,000, our total for the fund drive is $18,667.

The entire WyoFile organization would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who donated. We heard from a lot of repeat donors, and we were grateful to hear from a lot of new donors as well. We are especially humbled by the many people who chose to give to WyoFile on a monthly basis — sometimes pledging just $10 a month due to a tight budget. Some made large donations because they could, and nothing speaks more clearly to the value of quality journalism than those readers who give what they can and tell us they wish they could give more. Thank you.

We also received a lot of comments from our readers as they gave.

“Keep up the good work … reporting events truthfully and without bias. Walter Cronkite would have been a strong supporter of WyoFile,” commented Tim Belton of Sheridan.

And this comment from Amy Nagler of Laramie made us swell up with pride: “I feel like I’ve ‘gotten to know’ Wyoming better since I’ve started reading WyoFile on a regular basis. Ignorance and complacency go hand-in-hand — and the reporting presented here has inspired me to take action on local issues and educate myself further and take pride in being a citizen of the great state of Wyoming.”

Thank you to all who donated during our very successful Spring Fund Drive, and don’t forget that you can support WyoFile throughout the year. We look forward to delivering more quality, in-depth reporting on Wyoming’s people, places and policy.

  1. Fearless un-biased reporting died years ago. But it is an election year and an El Nino year. Could get hot Tee Hee
