Wausau Pilot & Review

NewsMatch, the largest annual grassroots fundraising campaign to support nonprofit news organizations, is underway in newsrooms across the country including Wausau Pilot and Review. The campaign doubles donations to nonprofit newsrooms in nearly every state across the country through Dec. 31.

Each organization is eligible to receive a total of $14,000 in matching funds for small-dollar donations from individuals of up to $1,000 each. NewsMatch is designed to help fuel a surge in giving to local and investigative reporting and strengthen nonprofit newsrooms through training and shared resources.

On Tuesday, Wausau Pilot & Review was selected to receive $20,000 in additional matching funds from NewsMatch for our dedication to serving residents in Wisconsin with local news about issues that impact their lives. The Loud Hound Partner Fund is awarded to select newsrooms serving residents in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. That means we could raise up to $34,000 in matching funds to support our newsroom in 2022, which would allow us to hire an additional reporter to cover local communities in our area.

Wausau Pilot & Review is a nonprofit newsroom and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. We would not exist without reader support, and we are grateful to each and every one of you.
