As an individual who believes that a thriving democracy depends on access to accurate information, new ideas and achievable solutions, please consider supporting the Tyee Solutions Society Fund.

Hundreds of newsrooms across North America have shut their doors. Yet, during this time of significant global change, the need is more critical than ever for credible journalism that reveals urgent problems, thoroughly examines and explains the facts, holds those in power accountable, and identifies achievable solutions.

The ability to produce well-investigated, in-depth, solutions-oriented reporting in the public interest depends on contributions from supporters like you.

$1,000 enables a thoroughly-investigated feature article that shines a light on issues affecting Canadians but often left out of mainstream media coverage.

Your donation will support the following:

  • Reporters’ wages and field expenses
  • Broad distribution of our reporting through an expanding network of media partners
  • Distribution to influentials, decision-makers, and elected officials
  • Public engagement events that mobilize citizens to take action around viable solutions to issues impacting their communities
