Thank you, generous Bridge readers. You did it!

Thank you Bridge Readers for supporting Bridge

We at Bridge are extremely grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support provided by you – the readers – in our year-end fundraising campaign. We are so proud to announce that your financial contributions allowed us to fully meet the $25,000 year-end Knight News Match from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. And the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation will continue to match reader donations in 2017 – up to $75,000 total.

Altogether in 2016, the total number of Bridge donors (2,000), and your total giving ($120,000) doubled the reader support provided in 2015. Day by day and one by one, YOUR reader support is steadily building a new, sustainable, public-driven way for Bridge Magazine to deliver high-quality, nonpartisan, in-depth, data-driven news and information across Michigan – for years to come! With our deepest gratitude… Happy New Year!

Out standing reporting. My interest is more to future than current interest in cat that did not come. Economy, Jobs, funding SS Medicare are problems that need sunshine
