We’re entering the final 7 days of our crowdfunding campaign for a yearlong reporting project on small business survival. Thanks to many generous backers, the project is 75% funded, but we still need to raise $6,000 more by the middle of next week. If you haven’t gotten a chance to read about our plans, please check out our page on the Beacon journalism site. Your support will help us fund comprehensive reporting on a critical topic, but it will also send a strong message that saving our independent businesses is important. This is a collaboration with our community. Let’s do this together! Click here to support the campaign.
