Today is #GivingNewsDay! Help support nonprofit news in the Central Coast - every donation doubled.

Thanks to a generous grant from NewsMatch, your donation is doubled.

So easy! Just click the donate button or the NewsMatch box above to contribute by credit/debit card or PayPal. Your contribution is tax-deductible.

Your contribution is doubled. This #GivingNewsDay is a rare chance to take your support for Voices of Monterey Bay twice as far. News Match, the largest grassroots fundraising campaign to support nonprofit news organizations, has generously offered to double any donations made between now and the end of the year, up to $1,000 per donation.

To maximize this match, we’ve set a goal to raise $2,000 in one day

As an independent, nonprofit news organization we put our mission before profits. Since our launch last month, Voices of Monterey Bay has offered a unique new take on local news and community engagement. We believe we have already made a difference. Your support today will go so far in expanding our resources and our coverage of the issues that make a difference on the Monterey Bay.

We believe quality journalism makes a difference in our community, and your support makes what we do at Voices of Monterey Bay possible. Without you, stories don’t just go unread — they go untold.

We would gratefully accept your contribution today. But please know that the matching-grant program extends through the end of the year. In any case, we would like to continue to be the informative, engaging news site that you expect us to be. Your donation will help us achieve that goal. 

Checks should be made out to “Institute for Nonprofit News,” with “Voices of Monterey Bay” in the memo space. They can be mailed to:

Voices of Monterey Bay
P.O. Box 547
Salinas, CA 93902

Large or small, we’ll appreciate it.
