Bridge Michigan
Michigan’s nonpartisan, nonprofit news source

Our spring fundraising campaign begins now!

Since our founding in 2011, we’ve made it our mission to produce journalism that keeps you informed and connected to the state we love. As we prepare to cover this important statewide election, we are asking for your tax-deductible support.

First-time donations to our spring campaign are matched by the Herrick Foundation! Will you become a Bridge Michigan member today?
