Today is New York Gives Day, when residents are encouraged to donate to nonprofits. It continues through 11:59 p.m.
Many readers do not realize that The Highlands Current, which is provided free to the community, is a nonprofit enterprise supported by advertisers, grants and the generosity of its readers.
During our annual appeal, every tax-deductible gift of up to $1,000 given to support the newspaper through the end of the year will be doubled through NewsMatch, a program by the MacArthur Foundation, Knight Foundation the Democracy Fund, and then tripled by a generous supporter.
The Current is a member of The Trust Project, a consortium of news outlets that has adopted standards to allow readers to more easily assess the credibility of their journalism.
