The impact of local news is immeasurable

Trusted, local journalism is essential for a thriving community and a healthy democracy, and The Daily Herald covers Snohomish County like no other institution or organization can. We are the community’s watchdog and storyteller, and we have been for more than 100 years.

Our reporters are out in the community, listening to you, telling your stories, and lifting up the voices of those who often feel unheard. Our award-winning journalism often sparks change and sets the agenda for public policy debate.

Because of the quality reporting we do every day, we hope you are more civically engaged and feel more connected to the places you call home. If you do, we are fulfilling our public service mission as an independent, local newspaper.

Community-funded journalism expands our reporting

Like many newsrooms across the country, The Daily Herald has established several journalism funds that enable us to expand our reporting to meet community needs.

For each of these journalism funds, we partner with a nonprofit fiscal sponsor so you can make a tax-deductible donation that invests in trusted, local news.

Investigative Journalism Fund

Investigative journalism is one of the most time-intensive and expensive types of reporting. It holds those in power accountable, validates those who often feel invisible, and seeks to right wrongs. This fund is a partnership between The Daily Herald and Journalism Funding Partners, tax ID #84-2968843, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
