Happy holidays!

We hope this email finds you well and in good spirits. As we approach the end of the year, we wanted to take a moment to update you on the progress and achievements of Fredericksburg Free Press.

We are excited to share that we have made significant strides towards our mission to provide local, nonpartisan, and independent journalism that fosters social cohesion, encourages community participation, informs the public about local government decisions, promotes economic development, advances the arts, and ensures the social welfare of all residents in the Region.

Please see the attached update for a brief overview of our accomplishments to date.

In addition, we are thrilled to share a video that we have created to help citizens understand why Fredericksburg Free Press is so important to the community. You can view the video here:

None of these achievements would have been possible without your invaluable support. Your commitment to our cause has made a real difference in the community. As we approach the end of the year, we kindly request your continued support to help us sustain and grow our initiatives in the coming year.

Your contribution, no matter the size, can truly make a meaningful impact. We are currently in the process of reviewing candidates for our first hires for the newsroom and your support will directly contribute to our success.  We expect to bring the new hires on board early next year, and launch in February.

We truly value and appreciate your ongoing support. To contribute, you can make a donation through our online donation platform at fredericksburgfreepress.com or mail a check to Fredericksburg Free Press, 809 Charlotte Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22401.
