We are blown away by your generous support. Since the start of the NewsMatch campaign we have raised $126,570.

Every day, Voice of OC journalists dig deeper into the raw news of the day to deliver in-depth and investigative reporting that engages communities, advances solutions and demands accountability.

This is journalism that informs. This is journalism that matters. And this is journalism worth supporting.

The time is now. We’ve already exceeded our fundraising goal, but anything else we raise will do even more to support our efforts in 2020 and beyond.

And remember,

•     Every person who gives before Dec. 31 will receive a special-edition VOC silver enamel pin.

•     Each person who gives $20 monthly will receive a New York Times digital subscription.

•     If you give $84 monthly or $1,000 a year you will be part of the exclusive VOC Ambassadors program including invitations to special events.With gratitude,

Sonya QuickDigital Editor, Voice of OC

Since you've made it this far,

You are obviously connected to your community and value good journalism. As an independent and local nonprofit, our news is accessible to all, regardless of what they can afford. Our newsroom centers on Orange County’s civic and cultural life, not ad-driven clickbait. Our reporters hold powerful interests accountable to protect your quality of life. But it’s not free to produce. It depends on donors like you.
