Without you, stories go untold

HomeBulldog in the NewsWithout you, stories go untold

Please invest in quality journalism today

It’s #GivingTuesday—or as we call it around here, #GivingNewsDay—a special day to celebrate and champion The Austin Bulldog’s investigative reporting in the public interest.

Your donation today will accelerate our ongoing investigation of how your property taxes, that are supposed to be used only for indigent healthcare services, are also being used for other purposes. Your donation will help us keep fighting for open government. Your donation will provide funding for deep-dive background investigations of candidates running for local offices in 2018.

These are hugely important projects that only The Austin Bulldog delivers—completely original, totally independent, leading-edge investigative reporting. Please donate now.

Since founding this independent nonprofit news organization that’s been serving Austin for more than seven years, I have always put the news-gathering mission first. Frankly, I’ve paid too little attention to gathering financial support. But now I’m taking this #GivingNewsDay opportunity to ask for your help so the Bulldog can be of even greater service to the community.

Your tax-deductible contribution will go three times as far, thanks to the generous backing of News Match 2017 program for nonprofit newsrooms that will double individual contributions of up to $1,000. Plus, the local Kirk Mitchell Public Interest Investigative Journalism Fund will match contributions of any amount.

Please help us reach today’s goal of raising $5,000. Combined with these matches, that $5,000 will generate $15,000 in support.

To make your tax-deductible donation now, tax-deductible contribution.

I deeply appreciate your support,

Ken MartinFounder, editor and publisher
