Week in, week out, Berkeleyside provides breaking news, investigative stories and feature articles to the Berkeley community.

We need you to help us continue to provide that coverage.

On this #GivingTuesday we hope you will consider how valuable Berkeleyside is to you, and that you will support us by becoming a Berkeleyside Member.

At the time of writing Berkeleyside counts 401 members who have supported us in the past 12 months. We have set a goal of achieving 500 members by Dec. 31! Will you join the club to help us meet that goal?
