We're almost there! Can you help?

Thanks to many of you, our beloved readers, we've raised $9,120.63 so far in our first-ever reader drive. There's just one more week; can you help us close it out on a high note as you double your impact this week?

Your support, combined with contributions from the Coalition for Smarter Growth and some money of my own, helps cover core expenses of Greater Greater Washington, including our new associate editor, J. Shawn Durham.

For this final week of our reader drive, we have a way to double the impact of reader support. Two generous individuals have agreed to match one for one any more contributions you make, up to $3,000. That means that we could potentially get to $15,000. How far can we go?

Your support will help us pay Shawn to keep the quality and pace of articles on Greater Greater Washington high. If we get more support, we can also have Shawn put time into reaching out to more communities that we don't talk about as much; we'd really like to do more east of the Anacostia River, in Prince George's, and in many parts of Virginia, for example.

Please support us today with $20, $100, $500, or whatever you can afford. If you can do a monthly or yearly contribution, that can go even further by giving us a more reliable funding stream (though of course you can stop contributing at any time).

If you don't want to use PayPal, you can mail us a check (the address is on this page); drop us a note at info@ggwash.org to let us know so we can count it toward the goal!

Thank you for your support of Greater Greater Washington!

David,

Could I drop off a small cash donation, marking it for GGW?

Thanks,

MHJ: Sure. There's a mail slot at the house (the address on the support us page, so you can put it in an envelope and stick it through there. Write your email address too so we can send you the official thank-you email.

How would that be done?
