Sending out postcards to Summit Voice supporters today! Every single Summit Voice story — more than 7,000 — has been written on this 2009 MacBook. It needs to be replaced, soon, so we’ve set our initial fundraising target at $1,000. Stay tuned for updates!

FRISCO — Just 10 days into our fundraising drive, we’re sending out handwritten postcards to loyal readers and Summit Voice supporters in Utah, Montana and around Colorado. What a great first show of support for independent journalism in the Rocky Mountains!

We’re hoping to do more stories like last summer’s in-depth series on Colorado’s different forest types.

You won’t get this kind of reporting anywhere else, so help us sustain in-depth environmental journalism.

Regular readers also know we offer a great overview of important climate-change research, and we try to cover Colorado water and endangered species and biodiversity like the critical, serious issues that they are – with sustained, ongoing coverage.

Help support professional and intelligent reporting on the environment with a donation of any size, and leave a comment at the end of this post to tell us which environmental stories you’d like to see covered. (Snail Mail: Bob Berwyn, P.O. Box 340, Frisco, CO 80443). __________________________________________________

Our original appeal, posted May 31:

FRISCO — After almost five years and more than 6,500 stories, Summit Voice is still going strong. With your grassroots support, we’re going to renew our dedication to Colorado environmental news.

You won’t find better reporting on forest, water, endangered species and public lands. But independent journalism isn’t free. It involves a sustained commitment of time and energy. Direct funding by readers is the best way to avoid pressure from advertisers and to ensure continued in-depth and unbiased reporting.

Readers often ask how they can support Summit Voice, so we’ve added a PayPal button for donations.

Any amount is welcome. For $50 or more, pick out a set of three note cards from our selection at Fine Art America. Donate $250 or more, and choose a medium-size fine art print. Click here to see our artwork.

You can also donate the old school way by sending a check to Bob Berwyn, P.O. Box 340, Frisco, CO 80443.

Thanks for your continued support and please spread the word!

  1. To me Bob’s environmental articles and comments, and esp. the links, are worth at least as much as nytimes subscription, IMHO. I do volunteer, retired person work for LWV and Breathe Utah, and a little work for the county, and both the news and pix make my day brighter.
