Thank you to everyone who chipped in during our Spring Subscriber Drive. Through your generosity we were able to have our largest fundraising drive ever. This is a big step on the way to turning The Urbanist into a permanent institution and growing our capacity.

We’re so grateful to the 94 readers who donated or subscribed this drive. I was touched by the kind words we heard from our supporters and friends. The outpouring of support recharges our batteries in multiple ways and means a lot to us.

From Michael Hobbes‘ succinct “I gave these goobers money and you should too!” to longer heartfelt messages, we loved them all.

Improving cities and the dialogue around them is what we’re all about, and the drive was nice confirmation that our mission is hitting home for folks. “[The Urbanist] has changed how Seattle talks about cities,” Robert Cruickshank said.

Our two-week subscriber drive has wrapped up, but it’s not too late to pitch in with a buzzer-beater donation. Give today if our reporting, endorsements, advocacy, events, and community-building is something you rely on.
