Support Berkeleyside


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 donation.

By doing so, you will be championing independent local journalism.
