Working together in mutual support

It’s no secret that community newspapers are having a tough time in a changing media landscape, where costs of printing and delivery continue to rise and advertising revenue can’t keep up.

Many communities have seen their local newspapers diminish and disappear.

The Nugget is healthy — and that’s thanks to you, our loyal advertisers and committed readers. Our Supporting Subscriber program has become a vital and effective way for readers to directly support The Nugget as we deliver it at no charge across the Sisters community.

Supporting Subscribers’ contributions are earmarked to support our remarkable cadre of freelance reporters, columnists and photographers, who are deeply committed to covering the life of the community they live in.

The Nugget wants to magnify the impact of new Supporting Subscriber contributions through a program that also benefits Sisters Country nonprofits.

When you purchase a Nugget supporting subscription during February or March 2024, 100 percent of your contribution goes to paying freelance contributors AND The Nugget will donate an ad of equal value to the local nonprofit of your choice. The nonprofit can run their ad whenever it is most effective for them, until August 31, 2024. See the Donate tab at the top of our homepage for details of the program.

More than most places, Sisters is a community that believes in mutual support. Through this program, we hope to keep ourselves and the organizations that make Sisters vibrant going strong long into the future.
