The Notebook has exciting news! The Knight Foundation will match your donations (up to $1,000 per individual)! Donate online or by mail.

Knight will match contributions for the next month up to $25,000 total. We are one of 57 news organizations across the country to receive this grant. This $25,000 matching grant will make a huge impact - more than doubling our usual year-end campaign total, and giving us a boost as we ramp up our daily news coverage in the new year.

Thank you to the Knight Foundation and to all our readers for your support.
