The Eastsider Fall 2022 Fundraiser

Dear Reader,

For more than a decade, The Eastsider has brought you community news you can’t find anywhere else.

Nearly every day since it launched, The Eastsider has told you about the people, the issues and the events going on in your neighborhood. But you may not realize all this happens with only one full-time employee — me.

In addition to assigning, writing and editing stories, I handle social media posts, fundraising, ad sales, invoices and production of the Daily Digest newsletter. This can all be overwhelming! 

I am fortunate to have a handful of talented, part-time workers and freelance writers. Readers have been generous with story ideas and photos. However, for The Eastsider to keep growing, I will need more help.

That’s why I'm seeking to raise $25,000 by the end of the year to hire a part-time assistant editor, who can free me up to spend more time ensuring we bring you more of the news you need. I would be grateful for your help in reaching that goal.

As The Eastsider has grown, I’ve come to realize that this site is more than just me — it’s about all of us. It’s a joint effort to keep our communities informed and connected.
