You care about the future of Minnesota. And Minnesota’s immigrants and communities of color are creating a cultural mix in our communities unlike any other in the nation.

Sahan Journal is the only newsroom dedicated to providing authentic news reporting for and with immigrants and Minnesotans of color. Every day we work to produce stories that keep you informed. This is the type of journalism that cannot wait. Because if we don’t tell these stories, no one will.  

Our work isn’t possible without your support.

That’s why we’re excited to share that we have an opportunity to make your donation go even further this year through NewsMatch, a local and national movement to sustain journalism through matching gifts. Since 2016, NewsMatch has raised over $150 million to keep nonprofit journalism like ours going strong.

Starting now—through December 31—U.S. Bank, Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, the Minneapolis Foundation, and NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12 times or double your one-time gift, all up to $1,000.

When you give $10 a month, Sahan Journal will earn a $120 community match—that is $240 total. Your $20/month will become $480, and so on. Finally, your one-time gift of $1,000 will earn a $1,000 match—yielding $2,000 to support our nonprofit newsroom.

There are just so many reasons to support Sahan Journal right now.

  • Our eight-person newsroom constantly produces stories that shed light on the lives and experiences of Minnesota’s communities of color—contributing voices and perspectives that have been left out of mainstream media coverage. 
  • We create journalism that represents the changing face of Minnesota and recognizes that democratic engagement and power belong to everyone. 
  • It’s the first day for you to take advantage of an incredible offer to double your monthly giving! Your monthly gift, in any amount, will be matched 12 times by NewsMatch and community partners.

Your gift today, combined with others, can help raise $60,000 for Sahan Journal. 

Our monthly donors are critical to Sahan Journal’s long-term sustainability. Your participation will help us deliver innovative journalism that you’ve come to rely on and expect. 

Without you, stories about immigrants and communities of color don’t just go unread—they go untold.

Can you help us meet our fundraising goal? Be one of the new monthly donors who take advantage of this matching opportunity.

With gratitude,
