It’s no secret that nonprofit news is a tough business. It takes a lot of time, energy, and funding to produce the kind of reporting and storytelling The Ally strives to publish every day.

We know it’s important because we provide critical information and insights that most other news outlets choose not to publish. Do your part to power the news that matters to you! Invest in: News for People. Not for Profit. No Paywall. Give now.

We’re grateful to our readers and supporters who keep us going. We’ll never stop working for you! Donate!

And … there’s still time! Please help us spread the word by forwarding this message to friends and colleagues who you think would be interested in supporting our work.

Let them know that The Sierra Nevada Ally has been selected to receive $15,000 in matching funds from NewsMatch 2022 for our dedication to serving our residents with local news about issues that impact their lives and support civic engagement.

NewsMatch 2022 is a fundraising initiative sponsored by The Institute for Nonprofit News (INN). The Ally is a full member of INN, one of only two such publishers in Nevada. Until December 31, 2022, your gift will be doubly matched.

The Loud Hound Partner Fund also awarded us matching funds to cover important civic, environmental, cultural, and political issues that impact our citizens’ lives.

Join us and triple your support of the Sierra Nevada with a gift today for up to $1,000 per gift.

On behalf of all of us at the Sierra Nevada Ally, thank you for your generous support.

With gratitude,

The Ally Staff
