Support Independent Journalism

The coronavirus outbreak has taken a toll on communities, our country, and the world. With public schools at the center of vital decision-making, our reporters are working around the clock to answer urgent questions facing educators, families, school boards, and citizens. 

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit news organization. To keep doing this work in the days to come, we hope you will consider a tax-exempt donation so that we can focus on providing the accurate news and information that students and parents so desperately need. 

Due to our efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have asked all of our staff to work remotely. To ensure timely receipt of your donation, please consider making your donation electronically. To use a credit card, donate below. To contribute via ACH payment, Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), or provide another form of financial support, learn more about other ways to give.
