Support the public service mission of a truly local newspaper for the Outer Cape.
Joining the Provincetown Independent means supporting aspiring journalists. You’re also funding in-depth reporting on issues of critical importance to the Outer Cape community. These are the priorities of the Local Journalism Project — the nonprofit part of the Independent. You’ll get our weekly newsletter updates. And as a member, you are also eligible for a discount on your subscription* (just ask before you subscribe and we’ll send you a special code to make that happen.)
(These “join” buttons are for giving by credit card.
We are also happy to receive your gift by check. Please get in touch and we’ll tell you the particulars.)
Your gift to the Provincetown Independent covers one full year of membership. Donations are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsorship agreement with the Center for the Study of Public Policy, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
*A tax-related detail: if you take a subscription discount, its value won’t be tax deductible, though the rest of your donation will be.
Alongside our nonprofit project, we are busy building a for-profit, mission-driven newspaper for Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, and Eastham. We are inspired by leaders of other small local newspapers who tell us they are succeeding, in spite of all the difficulties of the news economy, thanks to independent ownership that focuses on reinvesting profits in the mission.
We are incorporated as a Massachusetts benefit corporation and our vision is to become a healthy part of the local economy, supported by readers and advertisers, and able to reinvest in the community by improving our work and adding local jobs.
We are enormously grateful to a group of community-minded investors who have helped us get launched. We know we need additional capital to get through several years of growth and development before we become sustainable. If you would like to talk with us about the path we are on, we would be happy for the chance to tell you about it and about the dreams our intrepid group is determined to accomplish.
Please email us if you would like to learn more about our business plan.
