Community news keeps a community informed and connected—in good times and bad. Articles on this website can be read for free because we believe in making news accessible.

But there are costs involved. Your contributions enable us to keep posting news daily, delivering it to email inboxes, and paying our reporters a small stipend. Will you help?

The kind of news your support makes possible—

The Lansing Journal is all about our local community.

We shared the news about Lansing’s dog park.

We reported South Suburban College’s announcement that they are developing a Barber College.

We kept you updated on the installation of license plate recognition cameras.

We let you know why you can’t put pizza boxes in your recycling bin.

How much is that kind of news worth to you?

Your friends and neighbors

When Marlene Cook wrote a book about the First Church PCA graveyard, when Ballet Folklórico performed at TF South, when local residents started a Food Swap, and when Lansing veterans participated in Honor Flight Chicago—you read about it in The Lansing Journal.

Who else is writing about your friends, your neighbors, your kids?

“I quit my subscription to The Times a few months ago,” one Lansing resident told us. “The only reason we subscribed was to not miss death notices, but now we can get this on the internet very easily. The Lansing Journal is doing a great service to the Lansing community!”

Businesses too

Businesses, we’ve covered your grand openings, your ribbon-cuttings, your expansions and remodels. We’ve encouraged people to shop local. We’ve shared the histories of established Lansing businesses and celebrated the arrival of new ventures.

How much would you pay for that kind of publicity?

We can’t do it alone

We believe that Lansing residents, businesses, schools, and elected officials have important stories to share. And we are working hard to share those stories. But we can’t do it alone. We need your support.
