Sponsors | Big thanks to an 11th-hour $300 donor!

A very, very generous reader who asked to remain very, very anonymous has now donated $300, helping push me past my $4,000 goal. This individual has been a major supporter during the past year, often providing documents and other information that have been invaluable additions to Gannett Blog.

Along with recent $5 contributions from Arizona, Michigan and Kentucky; $10 from Iowa, and $50 from Virginia, I've reached 105% of my goal. With today's end of the quarter, this is only the second time that I've hit this goal. Thank you, all. The breakdown:
  • Reader donations: $1,928
  • Advertising: $2,261
I'm trying to earn $4,000 quarterly, through donations of $5 per reader, plus advertising sales. To pay by credit card or PayPal, please use the "Donate" tool in the green rail, upper right. Or mail cash/checks payable to: Jim Hopkins, 584 Castro St. #823, San Francisco, Calif., 94114-2594.


  1. Glad to hear you did it!!

  2. Congratulations Jim!

  3. Yipeeeeee!!
    I hope this and more happens every quarter.

  4. Time to raise the budget number by 20%. That's what we have to do every year!
