Our annual appeal has begun!

As a nonprofit, we depend on our readers to help support our reporters, photographers and editors and to provide the newspaper and website free to the community. Donations of up to $1,000 through Dec. 31 will be matched TWICE — first by NewsMatch, a national campaign supported by major foundations, such as Knight and MacArthur, for nonprofit journalism and again by a generous local donor.

That means until the end of the year, every $50 gift is worth $150 to us, every $100 is actually $300, every $500 is actually $1,500, and so on. Or, if you give $5 or $10 or $20 per month as a recurring gift, both campaigns will match the yearly total, i.e., $60 or $120 or $240. Thank you for your continued support!




Your support makes it possible for us to continue our award-winning reporting on local news and events, the arts and much more each and every week. The newspaper and website have together won a total of 53 state and national awards since 2013.

Highlands Current Inc. is a 501(c)(3) federally tax-exempt organization, and donations to it are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
