BECOME A BERKELEYSIDE MEMBER: SUPPORT INDEPENDENT LOCAL JOURNALISM!
Berkeleyside was launched on a firmly rooted belief that our city needs a fresh, trusted, independent, locally produced source of news.
We deliver on that mission every day: providing breaking news and unmatched investigative journalism on the issues that matter for Berkeley. Our experienced, professional journalists deliver essential local news and community information to you as soon as it happens.
A sustainable Berkeleyside requires support from a number of different sources, including our community of readers. If you value Berkeleyside and want to see it continue to provide a forum for the community, please consider becoming a Berkeleyside member — or provide a one-time contribution.
By doing so, you will be championing independent local journalism.
As a valued Berkeleyside Member you will be eligible for the following:
- An invitation for you and a guest to attend Berkeleyside’s annual Members’ Party
- Discounts on tickets to our events, including the annual Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas
- Advance notice of special events
- Quarterly Berkeleyside newsletter
Thank you in advance for your support!
The most efficient way to become a Member is to make a monthly payment — however much you feel comfortable with — just as you would have paid a subscription to a newspaper in the old days! This can be done simply and quickly via PayPal or credit card.
Make a single contribution of any amount using PayPal or your credit card. Be sure to renew annually to remain a current member. Contributions to Berkeleyside are not tax-deductible.
