Reasons to Give
San Diego and the nation need fearless, nonpartisan truth-tellers to unearth the facts about decisions, policies and practices affecting our daily lives. By supporting inewsource, you’ll join a growing network of donors and philanthropists who view the credible, in-depth journalism we provide as critical to a functioning democracy.
Your donation may pay for:
- A reporter’s salary
- The legal costs inherent in upsetting powerful people and government institutions
- Semester-long internships for aspiring journalists and computer programmers
- Exorbitant copy fees charged by certain government agencies
- Updating our interactive maps and searchable data sets
The money also allows us room to experiment and innovate, to find new ways of conveying our stories across every platform we serve — from websites, TV and radio stations to podcasts, email newsletters and workshops.
Become a member for five bucks a month — less than the price of one extravagant coffee — or make a one-time contribution in any amount. We promise you will not be disappointed in your investment.

Charles Lewis, on inewsource:
"We need investigative reporters, with their unusual, forensic approach to amassing and analyzing volumes of disparate information over days, weeks and even months; with their otherworldly patience, steadfast perseverance, and razor-sharp incisiveness.
"And we need editors and publishers to literally create the time and space for this crucial work, and the wisdom and judgment to effectively and responsibly shepherd these salient truths to the public."
"I choose to support inewsource because San Diego, as one of the largest cities in our nation, deserves more investigative news coverage than we receive. We have a few electronic papers, but not enough engage in strong investigative reporting. Unbiased news reporting is essential to inform voters, and informed voters are essential for good government.
"I’ve lived in San Diego for 35 years and watched the decline in reporting with dismay. We NEED inewsource to thrive. How many e-news organizations do we need? The more the better! But they need money to pay excellent reporters. That’s why I support inewsource and its mission."
Truth Matters. Help us find it.
"I support inewsource because of the great work of Karin Winner and Lorie Hearn. With the decline of newspaper and TV staffing for local coverage, inewsource plays a valuable role in critically examining the local landscape.
"The investigation of local issues and policies and behavior of key political and civic leaders is really important."
—Jack McGrory, inewsource supporter
