We’re asking again.
When Covid shut down the world in 2020, abruptly eliminating much of the advertising revenue at Beaver Dam Partners’ then three newspapers (Wareham Week, Sippican Week and Dartmouth Week), we asked for donations from readers. And you came through!
With the pandemic now in the past and ad revenue back on track, we are out of the woods. But . . . producing quality local news is not inexpensive. In addition to paying our full-time journalists – the heart of the operation – there is printing, office rent, website maintenance, utilities, insurance, and more.
We are here today because of the support of our wonderful advertisers. If you enjoy reading any one of our papers and/or websites, please patronize the businesses and organizations that make it possible!
“Traditional” newspapers also get help paying their bills from subscriber revenue. Over the years, we have been asked by many loyal readers why we don’t do the same. “I’d pay for _____ Week!” they say.
We know they would. We also know that attaching a price – however small – to each newspaper would dramatically decrease our readership. If we want to provide a common source of good community information, we need to reach everyone in town. To do that, the “price” needs to be free.
So here’s the thing. If you appreciate what we bring to your community and can afford to make a contribution of any amount to help support the work we do, please do so by clicking the “Donate Now” button at the right.
Note: If you prefer to donate by check, please mail a check made out to the name of the newspaper you read to our parent company:
Beaver Dam Partners Inc.
219C Main St.
And thank you for helping us help the community!
