We’re not going to sugar-coat this — reader revenue helps fuel journalism.

So if local news matters to you, please donate to our 2021 Local News Fund today. With a goal of raising $30,000 through the Local Media Association, Racine County Eye will fund several investigative journalism projects.  Our community struggles with affordable housing, the impact COVID has had on our children, the criminalization of kids, and a massive backlog in our court system.

These shortcomings impact families, employment and taxpayers. 

The Racine County Eye is in a unique position to do this work. Focused on solutions-based journalism and committed to investigative journalism,  the Racine County Eye seeks out the highest and best information that adheres to the best practices in our industry. 

Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue that work.

As an added bonus, we’re offering the following incentives.
