Here are all the Berkeleyside readers who have become investors — so far

Today Berkeleyside is publishing the full list of readers who have become investors in their local news site since we launched our direct public offering — the first news organization in the country to do so.

We thank and salute each and every one of you!

The good news is you too can join this illustrious group of pioneers who are demonstrating both that they understand the importance of independent, high-quality journalism, and are helping to prove that there is a new model to potentially help sustain local reporting nationwide.

We have just 18 days to go to reach our end-goal of $1 million. The direct public offering closes on April 12. 

Momentum is building as we near the finish line. Since we began the final countdown one week ago today, several new investors have come on board, bringing the total from $893,000 to $964,000 from a total of 310 investors.

The list: Berkeleyside investors, as of March 26, 2018

It’s possible we have made an error, for which we apologize in advance — and we will fix it. It is also possible you have not yet completed the paperwork for your investment, in which case we can help you do that and you will be included on our final list of investors, to be published after we close the direct public offering on April 12.
