Annual Giving Campaign Update: Help Us Keep the Lights On at ELi!

By Beth Peck

The East Lansing community’s commitment to local news is lighting up our campaign, raising $79,650 to date, including a $3,000 Knight Community Bonus.

As we stand at the midpoint of our campaign, it’s with great enthusiasm that we announce we are 40% of the way toward our goal of $200,000. This progress shows a collective dedication of our supporters who believe in our mission of bringing East Lansing the news.

So far, 297 generous individuals have contributed to allow ELi to shine a light on local news in 2024. As the spirit of giving continues to thrive, we still have matching funds available! Every donation made now holds even greater potential, as it will be matched, doubling its impact. This is a unique opportunity for readers and supporters to maximize their donations and help us achieve our fundraising goal.

Together, let’s build a more informed community. Thank you for being a big part of our campaign’s success!
