As we welcome the warmth and hope of spring, we are reminded of the crucial role that local journalism plays in building healthy and resilient communities.
We cannot stress enough the importance of the support of readers like you in building a healthy newsroom.
As a nonprofit newsroom, Planet Detroit is dedicated to providing you with in-depth and accurate reporting on environmental and public health issues in the Detroit area.
While philanthropic support has been vital in our growth, relying solely on institutional support can be risky and unstable.
That’s why we need your support more than ever. By donating and becoming a member, you are investing in our newsroom’s health and resilience, ensuring that we can continue to provide high-quality reporting for years to come.
Today, readers support just 10 percent of our newsroom’s budget. To blossom into a sustainable future, we need to increase that amount.
Your donations help fund our operations and allow us to remain independent and free from the pressures of institutional interests. This means we can continue to report on the critical issues facing Detroiters, from climate change to public health, without bias or outside influence.
Our work is crucial to building a healthy, informed community this spring and beyond. But we can’t do it without you. By donating or becoming a paying member, you are helping us continue to investigate and report on the issues that matter most, empowering our community to take action toward a more sustainable future.
Thank you for considering supporting Planet Detroit this spring. Your support means the world to us and helps ensure we can continue providing the news and information our community relies on.
Together, we can build a sustainable and healthy newsroom that serves our community for generations.
