We aren’t in this for the money

Dear Readers,

Today we launch our annual year-end fundraiser, with help from NewsMatch. This year, NewsMatch will only match $10,000 – down from prior year matches of $25,000 and $15,000.

Let me be blunt, we need everyone’s support. As we continue to grow, our expenses go up – software and technical services, freelancers, insurance – all the things necessary to run a digital newsroom.

We bring you news of Norwalk, specifically what’s happening with government, education and land use. And we do it on a shoestring budget, dependent primarily on your support. We love this city and want to keep its citizens informed.

We do this for you. But we cannot do this without you.

I recently saw this pitch from another nonprofit news site:

“We don’t cover the news to make money, we ask you for money so we can cover the news.”


That pretty much sums it up.

Please donate generously to keep local news alive in Norwalk.



Claire Schoen

Board President

    Thank you for all the hard work you do. If we want to contribute ,but not electronically but by check then who is it be written to and where should it be mailed?? This would be helpful to many people I am certain. Thanks

    I have learned so much from Nancy on Norwalk. First, as a person who hasn’t been involved in local politics since moving here and needed a primer before dipping my toe into these conversations. Second, as a Graduate student in Communications & Media. Nancy on Norwalk is a fantastic example of independent reporting. I hope she and the NoN team receive all the financial support our community can muster for all they do to ensure transparency and democracy thrive in our local community.

    This morning I went to the Hour for election results. They were not updated. Went to NON and had all the results.Nancy on Norwalk has kept us from being a News Desert city. We were so fortunate to have constant updates and insight’s on local issues and a voice on these issues.
    Think about it. Do you just want to know there is a Board of Ed. meeting on Thursday or do you want to know what what was covered as well as what Board Members and Parents discussed.
