Wausau Pilot & Review

Each year, Wausau Pilot & Review is fortunate to participate in NewsMatch, which doubles all donations, up to $1,000 per person from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31. That allows us to raise up to $26,000 to support our nonprofit journalism in 2022.

Now, we have three new opportunities we’re excited to report. Thanks to new national donors, we added another $1,000 to the match fund. And, because we were chosen for an additional $20,000 match for select Wisconsin newsrooms, we can raise a total of $34,000 in our end-of year campaign. And this week we learned of a new program from the Google News Initiative that will award additional funding to newsrooms who see at least 100 NEW donors during the match period. Those new donors can choose to give a one-time match of as little as $1 to help us qualify. And we’re nearly to our goal.
