Support Local News Matters!

We bring attention to the artists, musicians, authors and actors who make the Bay Area such a rich cultural community. Especially during the pandemic, it is important to support the people who bring us thoughtful reflections on our society - even if it's through virtual events and streaming.

From now through Dec. 31, every dollar donated to Bay City News Foundation - the nonprofit behind Local News Matters - will get matched. We are participating in a program called NewsMatch that supports local newsrooms like ours so that we can bring verified, useful news about the region to you.
