Our underwriting program is a significant funding component of our non-profit and fully independent online journalism.

We offer businesses and nonprofits an opportunity to reach a niche audience of decisionmakers: legislators, state agency officials, lawyers, entrepreneurs, lobbyists, business leaders and avid news consumers.

As a non-profit news organization, VTDigger’s reporting is supported by individual contributions, foundation grants, and most importantly, our underwriters, who promote their services via ads that you see on our website.  In a recent survey of our members, 90% of respondents said that VTDigger publishes news they can’t get anywhere else.  Our avid audience has grown since our launch to over 115,000 unique visitors per month.  A significant number by both statewide and national publishing standards. endorses no political candidates or causes and seeks to present a broad spectrum of views. All sponsorship placements are subject to approval and should include verifiable sources of funding.
