Stand With Us!

We will never charge for the news but we would so deeply appreciate your voluntary support. Now (through December 31) NewsMatch will double your donation or match any new monthly donation pledges 12 times throughout the next year.

If you choose to send a check you should make it payable to the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) and put Shasta Scout in the memo. You can mail checks to 1647 Yuba Street #991215, Redding CA 96099.

We proudly display our supporters on our Members Wall.  We recognize that some people would rather not have their names publicly displayed.  If you’d rather keep your donation private, please opt out of inclusion on the Members Wall during the donation process. Thank you!
