The PRT is excited to announce our new monthly giving program: The PRT Press Core. 

core \ko(e)r\ noun: 1. the foundation, the center, the corazon

Our readers are the core of our community newspaper

What is The PRT Press Core?

Our new monthly giving program, where supporters of the PRT pledge to give $5 or more per month by credit card or PayPal.

We chose the name Press CORE, because the people we serve are our foundation, our corazon, 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 quarterly coupons offering discounts from local businesses.

Why is this important to the PRT?

As a free non-profit regional newspaper, we rely on the contributions of our readers to raise 20,000 a year or about 40% of our operating revenue. Pledging a monthly sustaining gift gives the PRT a predictable source of cashflow and contributes to our sustainability

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 Quarterly Coupons from local merchants offering discounts on their services and products.
  • $25/month: an invitation to our Thank You party, Quarterly Coupons, plus a free ticket to a current season concert at the Benderly-Kendall Opera House in Patagonia
