Inside VTDigger

Four days left! Help us follow up on your tips.

Dear Reader,

One of the first things I do every morning is sort through reader tips. They arrive in the newsroom through voicemails, emails, encrypted messaging apps and our confidential “send a news tip” form at the bottom of our homepage. That tip drop function alone receives more than 1,600 story ideas a year, and we review every one of them.

We can’t do this work without your support. Our extra-short Summer Member Drive ends on Friday. If you value responsive, rigorous journalism for Vermont, please make a donation to support our news today.

Following reader tips takes time and know-how — phone calls, interviews, public records requests and feet on the street across Vermont’s communities. In other words, it takes hard work from our reporters and editors.

The investment pays off. Just some of our stories born from tips so far this year include:

We follow these tips because we know readers rely on us as a first and last line of defense to help shine a light on important issues for Vermont. Now we are asking for your help.

We have only a few days to inspire readers like yourself to become new members. Will you support VTDigger’s fearless, nonprofit journalism by contributing today?

This work isn’t easy or cheap, but we know it’s important to you and your neighbors.

Thank you for reading and supporting VTDigger.
