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!
