100% of the Press Core donations go right back into the PRT. We chose the name Press CORE, because the people we serve are our foundation, the center of community journalism, and thus our core. Monthly giving provides the PRT with a predictable source of cash flow, thus contributing to our stability. In return, you as a PRT Press Core member, invest in the work of the PRT, while receiving special benefits, like an invitation to the annual party and a special gift.

Why is this important to the PRT?

As a free non-profit regional newspaper, we rely on the contributions of our readers to raise $40,000 a year or about 50% of our operating revenue. Pledging a monthly sustaining gift gives the PRT a predictable source of cashflow and contributes to our longevity.

As a thank you from the PRT, Press Core members receive these gifts:

  • $5/month: an Invitation to our Annual Thank You party.
  • $10/month: an Invitation to our Thank You party, plus an annual gift.
  • $25/month: an invitation to our Thank You party, customized PRT tote, plus another gift such as a free ticket to the Opera House show.
