Become an Indypendent Reader Sustainer Today!

Since 2006, The Baltimore Indypendent Reader has been your favorite, local, volunteer-operated, independent, and FREE  (although not free to produce) quarterly newspaper. In addition, the Indypendent Reader website offers daily installments of news, analysis, videos, and audio from a network of Baltimore journalists, activists, and citizens. 

While we give our time and labor to provide all this, we rely on readers like you to cover most of our operating costs. Running an independent media source without the financing of corporate bankrollers isn't easy, and we thank you for all of your support!

By becoming a Sustainer, you will:
  • Support the efforts of independent, grassroots media in your city,
  • Have a space to give us direct feedback through our Indypendent Reader Sustainers e-mail list, and:
  • Receive a copy of each new Indypendent Reader mailed to your house!
Here's what your yearly contributions will cover:
Helper  $5/month or $60/year Pay for two quality articles from contributing journalists
Sustainer $10/month or $120/year Cover the travel costs to cover a national event
Partner $25/month or $300/year Fund one month of Independent Reader operations
Comrade $50/month or $600/year Print 6,000 copies of The Independent Reader to be distributed across the city
Supporter $75/month or $900/year Cover six months of rent for our office space
Benefactor $100/month or $1200/year Help us get much needed media equipment (video camera, audio recorders, microphones, editing software, etc.)
