Do you value truly local reporting in your community? Make a donation and Support PVPost

PVPSupportCampaign

When the Prairie Village Post launched in 2010, it was a small side project intended to fill a void in news coverage of our community. Five years later, more than 60,000 unique visitors depend on the site for neighborhood-level reporting on government, schools, sports and business in Prairie Village, Mission, Roeland Park, Merriam, Westwood, Fairway, Mission Hills, Westwood Hills, Mission Woods and north Leawood.

Our goal is to see that the site continues to evolve, growing from a small business supporting two full-time staff members and a part-time salesperson into a thriving institution that provides truly local news coverage for people in northeast Johnson County and beyond for decades to come.

So this year, for the first time ever, we’re asking our readers to help keep shawneemissionpost.com operating and growing by making a financial contribution to the site. Our goal is to raise $30,000 — approximately what it costs us to cover our non-personnel expenses (site hosting, web development, insurance, etc…) each year.

And we’re hoping to make the decision to give a little easier by offering a slate of gifts to those of you who make a contribution. For starters, anyone who donates $10 or more (and answers a quick trivia question) will be entered into a drawing for a $150 gift card to Story at the Village Shops.

News flash: Story is yummy. A $150 gift card to Story would be a fun thing to have.
