December 2020 Giving Campaign
Local journalism is more important than ever. Despite financial setbacks, The Daily Orange continues to deliver essential coverage of Syracuse University’s coronavirus response and its effects on our community like no other outlet. We receive no money from the university, and that's by choice. Our independence means that much to us.
To keep our award-winning coverage accessible and relevant for all, we’re asking you to support our student staff in the month of December.
We’re the only student-run news outlet in Syracuse that pays its staff for their work, and we’re committed to that mission. But we can’t do it without your help. Every dollar donated this December will be allocated to staff stipends in 2021.
It’s our goal to be more representative of our community, and that starts with paying our staff. Working at The Daily Orange is an experience all students should have access to — not just those who can afford to volunteer dozens of hours each week. A more equitable and inclusive industry begins with fair pay in student newsrooms.
Paying our editors provides the baseline necessity to pursue the journalism our readers want. Every gift, no matter how small, brings us one step closer toward our $15,000 goal — and toward a brighter future for the best student-run newspaper in the country.
Thank you for supporting the next generation of journalists.
