Over the next several weeks, we’re accelerating fundraising for our coverage of the arts, education and local government. Each of these areas is ripe with news that you’ll want to know.

To meet our goals, we’re seeking at least 50 separate donations for each of the three news beats.

Every donation is a vote in support of our plans. Each also helps us leverage the support that comes from foundations, sponsors and our media partners.

To cast your vote, pick the most important area below and click on the ballot box next to it. You’ll be taken to our donations page. Once there, be sure to answer the question, “Where would you like your donation to go?”

Vote with a donation of $35 for the coverage you value most. Or you can vote for all three with a donation of $105! Maybe you support everything we do and would rather help us improve the website. If so, you can also vote for our technology efforts for $35.
