Why MinnPost doesn’t have a paywall

Reporting on the stories that matter

Donate today!

It’s the LAST DAY of our Fall Member Drive…and the last day to get in on the limited edition MinnPost T-shirt.

If you value our in-depth local reporting on politics and culture in Minnesota AND want to keep that journalism free for all readers AND want to sport your MinnPost pride out in the world, we need to hear from you with a donation today!


So far this drive, we’ve heard from 102 members with $8,251 in donations. We still need to raise $3,749 before midnight tonight to stay on track for our goal and make sure our nonprofit newsroom is fully powered in a big midterm election year. Will you get us to our goal (and snag a MinnPost t-shirt!) with a gift of $10/month or $120/year right now?

🤍 YES! I’ll become a monthly donor
🤍 YES! I’ll become a yearly donor

I’ll make a one-time gift instead

At the heart of our nonprofit mission, MinnPost serves as a trusted guide for Minnesotans exploring the issues and challenges facing our state. That’s why we don’t cover politics like it’s a sport and why we don’t block access to our reporting behind a paywall.

Support from readers like you is vital to our work. Not ready to commit to $10/month? Gifts of all sizes are critical to funding our nonprofit newsroom. Will you stand with our team and make a donation of any amount today?

We’re so honored to have so many MinnPost readers already donate during the Fall Member Drive! Here’s what a few of them had to say about why they chose to give:

“Great local news coverage – essential for those who care about Minnesota politics and the health of our state.” — Steve, Minneapolis

“You’re my go-to site for the news behind the news, with good research and understandable explanations.” — Anonymous donor, Andover

“I like news, and keeping up on trends and happenings around the local scene plus state and national too. MinnPost is an essential source for me and I respect their journalistic roots.” — William, St. Paul

“I support independent and unbiased journalism.” — JoAnn, St. Paul

This T-shirt deal is truly limited edition. You must donate $10 or more per month (or $120/year) before midnight to get yours, so be sure to set up your gift now!
