Support Chicago Indymedia!

Since 2000, Chicago Indymedia has served as a beacon for breaking news and in-depth information about progressive movements in the Chicago area and across the world. Where the corporate media has been silent on struggles for positive change, Chicago Indymedia has provided a space to learn about and contribute to the many movements for a better Chicago and a better tomorrow.

Our work spans the range of media tools, including our regular monthly TV and radio shows which broadcast locally, nationally and on the internet.

Corporate media provides a one-way conduit. Not us. We invite and encourage grassroots participation through our media projects, our open newswire and our open comments mechanism — all dynamic and democratic tools we deployed long before blogs helped make the practice widespread.

You're reading this because you participate in the Chicago Indymedia community. And as a member of our community, we'd like to ask for your help. Our operations cost money — for video tape, equipment and expenses like our phone line. If you value Chicago Indymedia and if you can afford to make a donation, please give.

You can donate in two ways:

1. ONLINE donations of $10 or more, by using the "Donate" link below
NOTE: Online donations will be processed by the Illinois Justice Foundation and Network for Good, and will appear as such on your credit card statement. They are tax-deductable.
Please be sure to enter CIMC or "Chicago Independent Media Center" in the "Designation" field of the donation form.

2. by sending a CHECK written out to "Chicago Independent Media Center" (or "CIMC") and mailed to us at:
c/o Goldhamer
P.O. Box 469
Chicago IL 60690

Everybody who donates gets a free Chicago Indymedia button — so be sure to include a mailing address where we can send our thanks. Supporters who donate more than $50 get a button and a free Chicago Indymedia t-shirt (be sure to include an email address and a size request). Supporters who donate more than $100 get a free CIMC t-shirt, a free CIMC button, and a full set of DVDs of "Chicago Independent Television", our nationally syndicated television show.

Finally, we are happy to take donations of financial assistance, equipment — or your volunteer labor! We always need computers, monitors, cameras, audio equipment, and anything else you think might be valuable to a public media outlet.

Please contact us if you would like more information about about donations or our work.

Thanks for being a part of the global Indymedia community, and for supporting Chicago Indymedia.

In solidarity,

The Chicago Indymedia collective
