Happy New Year!

On behalf of the entire Reader team, thank you so much for following along with our Focus Forward initiative. Those who supported during this campaign are supporting journalism dedicated to informing and uplifting Omaha with ideas that keep the focus on a better future. 

During this campaign, we welcomed 75 new members, raising more than $4,000 pledged to authoritative, in-depth reporting focused on you in 2022. This funding will allow us to pay reporters, photojournalists, freelancers and cover the cost of documents and research that brings to light the stories of our community, and the information we all need to change it for the better.

You can still help us take that even further.

Even though our Focus Forward initiative is over, you can still become a member today and fund this kind of reporting. Sign up here.

If you’re already a member, you can make an additional one-time contribution to help us cover the costs of a freelance project, or legal fees for our investigative work and special reporting. Contribute here.

Thank you for your consideration, and for helping us start 2022 off with a bang!

John Heaston
