We believe in the generosity and kindness of this community, and we’re hoping you’ll join in with a contribution this #GivingTuesday or what we prefer to call #GivingNewsDay.
As we end this year, and embark upon a new one, we’re asking for your help to ensure that Watershed Voice has the funding it needs to not only exist another year but for years to come.
A message from Executive Editor Alek Haak-Frost regarding Watershed Voice’s NewsMatch fundraising campaign.
From now until December 31, every donation made to Watershed Voice by donors like you will be matched by NewsMatch. The program will match up to $1,000 per individual donor, up to $13,000. Our goal is to raise a grand total of $26,000 from your donations plus the matching funds. We’re excited to launch this campaign to support our work in bringing you news that matters in St. Joseph County!

Watershed Voice (WSV) was awarded a $25,000 community impact grant on Thursday, April 13 from the Sturgis Area Community Foundation (SACF) for Watershed’s Community News Coalition project.
The past year for Watershed Voice was eventful to say the least, and while we plan to have more on that later with some Year in Review pieces to start 2023, our staff needs a break to rest, recharge, reflect, and refocus in anticipation for the year to come.
Alek and Doug discuss the week that was in Three Rivers, the resurrection of the Three Rivers Commercial-News, the news landscape in St. Joseph County, and what the future may hold for Watershed Voice as a daily news source in this new era of community journalism.
#GivingTuesday is also #GivingNewsDay and we’re hoping you’ll consider donating to Watershed Voice this giving season. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by day’s end in order to hire freelance journalists to bolster our already award-winning coverage.
