It’s the last day of our fall subscriber drive. Thanks to all our readers who donated this drive. We couldn’t sustain this organization, let alone look to broaden our operation, without your steadfast support.

Thanks to a surge of gifts, we are close to hitting our $2,000 goal for the final weekend. We had just $593 to go when this went to post at 6pm Sunday. By Monday morning, we’d closed the gap to just $333 to go. Can you help us get there in overtime?

Hitting our $2,000 goal will ensure high quality must read articles keep popping up in your feed. Our goal is to cover the entire Puget Sound Region, but it takes more writers and organizational capacity to do it. Our freelance writer program has expanded our reach and capacity, but we need continued investment to sustain it.

By Monday morning, the donate popup will be turned off, and we’ll be back to uninterrupted, paywall-free journalism. But it’s the donors who step up during our drives who make sure this service is available. The staff and freshly expanded board at the The Urbanist can’t underscore enough how much we appreciate that generosity. To our supporters: You’re the best!
