While paid advertising promotes local businesses and covers most of our costs, it’s… not… quite… enough. That’s where you come in. We are a small non-profit and we rely on donations to cover the difference and keep this paper going - 41 years strong!

We reach out and request donations at the end of the year in a focused effort. (Although we will accept donations at any time!!) We are incredibly grateful for your support. We couldn’t do it without you! 

You can pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card. 

Or mail a check, payable to The Sounds, to:
