Local communities are the lifeblood of society. We aim to deliver high-quality journalism to underserved communities and thereby foster civic engagement and contribute to a healthy democracy.


Berkeley, CA – EIN 843448887

The national crisis in journalism is most acute at the local level. On an almost weekly basis, reporters and editors are being shed at newspapers controlled by hedge funds and private equity giants. Fortunately, the ecosystem of nonprofit news is rapidly developing.

Research shows that in cities without a source of high-quality local news, municipal borrowing costs and local government corruption increases, voter turnout drops and political polarization increases.

Our many years of experience at Berkeleyside and The Tyler Loop have taught us that a strong community focus, an unswerving commitment to covering local stories that matter to residents and an openness to dialogue create a powerful bond with our readers and enables trusted, valuable journalism.
