A big thank you to everyone who was featured in our videos, our host, the speakers who presented the Jeanne Metzger tribute, and our sponsors who led the way with donations to support local journalism that supports our community.

Local journalism is essential – and you can help it thrive

Local is a key ingredient for journalism that helps build strong communities. In Snohomish County, The Daily Herald is the leading source of local news and information for more than 800,000 residents and our focus is on public-service journalism – reporting that holds power to account, uplifts diverse voices, shines a light on wrongdoing, and connects our community.

To enable us to do more reporting to meet our community’s needs for local journalism, the Herald has partnered with nonprofit fiscal sponsors to establish four community-supported journalism funds:

  • Education Project
  • Environmental and Climate Change Reporting
  • Health Reporting Initiative
  • Investigative Journalism

The Daily Herald maintains editorial control over content produced with resources from our journalism funds.
