Happy Giving Tuesday!

It’s thanks to generous readers like you that The Salt Lake Tribune is thriving and growing after becoming the first legacy newspaper in the U.S. to transform from a for-profit company to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

The next few weeks are a critical time for us. End of year giving sustains us through the first half of the coming year, allowing us to report on local governments, the environment, education and more.

Every day, The Tribune shares reporting that keeps Utahns informed. It’s challenging and expensive work. And we believe it’s vital to creating stronger communities.

In the last year, we co-launched the Great Salt Lake Collaborative, a group of more than 20 organizations focused on finding ways to ensure the lake survives, and reported in-depth on K-12 education, Utah’s troubled teen industry, matters of faith and more. We also welcomed a new business reporter, a clean energy reporter and a video journalist with your support.

Consider giving today to help The Tribune.
