We could really use your support during our Fall Subscriber Drive, which we started this week. The Urbanist is able to maintain its independent journalism focused on issues that matter most to you because of reader support.

Twice a year, we run subscriber drives asking you to support our unique brand of advocacy journalism. Those efforts have allowed us to bring two staff on full-time and pay most of our reporters on a per-article basis. Beyond that, our nonprofit is sustained by an amazing group of volunteers.

We’re looking to take on more campaigns and stories. More paid staff will make that possible. We’re proud of our work, but, like Seattle, we have lots of room to grow. We want provide deeper coverage across the region. Help us sustain our team and #GrowTheUrbanist.

Last subscriber drive, we added 28 subscribers and received 90 one-time donations and we’d aiming to beat that mark this time. Please subscribe or give today!
