UPDATED: $10,000 board match success!

$10,000 reader match challenge from the Vermont Journalism Trust Board

UPDATED: Thanks to over 100 contributing readers, we raised $10,113 and secured the $10,000 match offered by the Vermont Journalism Trust’s board of directors. Thank you! We still have $113,184 left to raise by June 15th. 


The Vermont Journalism Trust’s board of directors has offered a dollar for dollar match of up to $10,000 in reader donations raised by the end of this week. Now is a good time to make a donation and double its value.

We need your help. Please consider supporting our nonprofit newsroom with a gift in any amount today. Our reporting is only possible because of reader contributions. We rely on these gifts for 40% of our operating budget.


If you’ve been on the fence about making a gift this spring, today is a great day to support our newsroom.

Ways to give

A tax-deductible gift to VTDigger is one of the best ways to ensure that our reporting remains strong. Today, your gift will have twice the impact.

Thank you to everyone who has already given to our spring membership drive. All monthly and one-time donors are also entered into a raffle to win a brand new bike from Onion River Sports.

VTDigger.org is a project of The Vermont Journalism Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Our tax ID number is 27-1553931. Your gift is fully tax-deductible.
