Nugget Community Journalism Supporting Subscription
What is a supporting subscription?
A supporting subscription is a way for readers who appreciate and enjoy The Nugget each week to directly support our coverage of the news of the Sisters community. The Nugget does not charge for individual copies of the newspaper, which is distributed by mail throughout Sisters Country and through shops and other establishments downtown.
Why are supporting subscriptions important?
The Nugget is an “advertiser supported newspaper,” which means our revenue comes from the ads businesses and individuals run each week. Our costs for printing and distribution (postage and fuel) continue to rise at unprecedented rates, and we cannot and will not completely pass those costs on to businesses who are also feeling the pinch of inflation and rising costs of doing business. By directly supporting the paper, our readers can help us continue to provide Sisters’ weekly paper to tell the important stories of our hometown.
Where does supporting subscription revenue go?
The Nugget relies on a robust cadre of freelance writers and photographers to cover the news and create the feature stories you read each week. Our freelancers are local folks who love to tell their community’s stories — and they are also professionals who are paid for their work. Funds from supporting subscriptions are allocated directly to paying our freelancers for their stories and photography.
