Become a sustaining member by making a recurring donation, or join our mission with a donation in any amount. We started 48 Hills in 2013, when local media was being snatched up by greedy chains, beholden to corporate interests, and less concerned with indepth reporting on the issues that mattered. Five years later, we’re the only daily progressive news source in the Bay Area, delivering breaking news, provocative opinion, thoughtful analysis, and lively arts coverage to 35,000 readers weekly. We hold City Hall accountable, expose big business corruption, and lift up local arts and culture.
We rely on our community to continue our mission—quality reporting on the issues that matter most to you. Your donation will help us improve the site, broaden our coverage, hire more local reporters (at a time when so many are being let go), and keep building 48 Hills into the most vital news and culture source in the Bay Area. Thank you for believing in the power of local media!
