Friends of the Reporter

Monthly support and one-time donations can be made in any amount and helps support local, lively independent journalism in our weekly print edition and every day online.

We suggest $9.74 per Friend or $19.74 to be our BFF.
(Both amounts honor Santa Fe Reporter's first publication in 1974.)

We will thank you profusely in public if you desire.

Organizations that donate $500 per year as Business Friends get perks like discounts on digital advertising.

Send a check or visit us at 132 E Marcy St. 87501. Our office is open on Mondays and Tuesdays.



Let’s be friends. 

Why put your money here, now?

  • The business model that has sustained journalism is changing. Local advertising support matters, but it’s no longer enough to cover cost.
  • Our goal is to do MORE—not less—journalism. We need help to keep fearless watchdog reporting and essential arts and culture coverage viable here.
  • The Reporter is free for everyone—no paywalls, no subscriptions. We aim to keep it that way. 


In return, you’ll receive tangible benefits:

  • Discounts on SFR merch
  • Special invitations and ticket giveaways
  • Surprises from partners that we’ll announce soon
  • The gratitude of a scrappy handful of overworked, underpaid journalists who want to speak truth to power and tell stories that matter.
  • Go the extra mile and donate $19.74 per month (or $200), and we’ll regularly acknowledge you in print as a BFF of the Reporter.
