Support Us

Please help …

… our efforts to grow independent community journalism in Lakeland. Lkldnow.com is part of Linking Community Now Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation whose mission is to increase community engagement through news and information.

Donations are welcome through the form below or sending us a check: 331 S. Florida Ave. (basement), Lakeland 33801.

 All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We are proud participants in NewsMatch. During November and December, all individual donations will be matched 100 percent up to $1,000!

Where do we spend our money?

For now, our main expenses are free-lance writers, equipment and the technology that keeps the website running. Eventually, we’d like to hire full-time reporters.

Get a LkldNow T-shirt

During NewsMatch (now through Dec. 31), get a LkldNow T-shirt when you sign up to donate at least $6 a month or make a one-time donation of at least $75 to LkldNow. After completing the donation form above, just send us an email with your T-shirt size. Thanks for supporting LkldNow and community journalism!

Think of it as the NPR/PBS/community radio model: We won’t charge for our content, but we DO ask for voluntary support from those who find it valuable.

DONOR/SPONSORSHIP POLICY

  • LkldNow reserves the right to accept or decline any underwriting or sponsorship offered.
  • LkldNow will decline to accept underwriting that it knows or believes to be misleading, inaccurate, fraudulent or illegal, or that fails to comply, in LkldNow’s sole discretion, with its standards of decency, taste or dignity.
  • Political advertising will not be accepted.
  • LkldNow maintains a clear separation between news and underwriting content.  Underwriting that attempts to blur this distinction in a manner that, in LkldNow’s sole judgment, confuses readers, will be rejected.

This policy language is taken from similar guidelines developed by ProPublica.

Thank you for supporting lkldnow.com!
