Together, we can build the future of independent Indigenous storytelling on these Indigenous lands.
Community support makes IndigiNews possible. Contributions from our cuzzins (readers) is a big way that we fund our work — and it’s part of how we stay accountable to our communities. Thank you for backing independent Indigenous-centred media and storytelling.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where does my support go?
Your support helps us pay our reporters and editors, covering costs like producing stories and newsletters, hosting trainings and running our website. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to serve our community with the local news and stories you’ve asked for and deserve.
What do I get if I become a supporter?
You get the satisfaction of knowing that you contributed directly to a media organization that aims to serve Indigenous communities through trauma-informed practice. You also get supporter-only emails with additional behind-the-scenes news and insights on where your money goes. (And you’ll get invitations to supporter-only events as they become available!)
How can I contribute without going through the website?
You can send an e-transfer to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also email us with your security question and answer. If you’d rather send a cheque, you can send it to The Discourse (our sister company):
Discourse Media Inc.
308 – 877 E Hastings St
Vancouver, BC V6A 3Y1
Is your website secure?
All payments are processed through Stripe. Stripe is a PCI Service Provider Level 1 which is the highest grade of payment processing security. All credit card information is encrypted, sent directly to Stripe and is never sent to our website server. This means that we are PCI compliant and any breach of our website won’t result in stolen credit card information. Learn more here.
Will my contribution be considered a charitable donation for tax purposes?
No. We don’t have charitable status, so we can’t provide you a charitable tax receipt. IndigiNews / The Discourse believe local news needs a new, sustainable business model for the digital future so that local news businesses can flourish everywhere, and not just in the communities we serve.
