Triple the impact: Give more context on #GivingNewsDay!

by | Nov 28, 2023 | Context of islands | 0 comments

It’s (or what we prefer to call ), which is built on the idea of radical generosity following the splurging of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This day is all about helping our communities, showing up for issues that matter, and acknowledging our shared humanity.

As you know, Pasquines had its tenth anniversary this year, and we’re looking to keep the momentum growing. This year, we are participating in NewsMatch, a powerful collaborative fundraising movement to support independent journalism.

In a nutshell, this means that any contribution you make, up to $1,000, until December 31 will be tripled. With the support of readers like you, we hope to earn $9,000 through our NewsMatch campaign, enabling us to keep delivering in-depth, insightful journalism covering the context of islands.

We believe in the generosity and kindness of this community and are hoping to raise $500 by the end of the day. As an added bonus, thanks to the Knight Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation, all gifts up to $3,000 are being matched dollar for dollar. These funds will be essential in our mission to provide the news of the United States territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands. As part of your commitment to transparency, we’ve mapped out how additional funding will help us to grow and reach a wider audience so you can see the real impact your donations will have.

This is the moment to give. Can we count on you to help us reach our goal?  

This , invest in news that’s for you, not for profit. Invest in Pasquines and the context of islands.
