This Is Reno seeks your support on #GivingTuesday


This Is Reno has partnered with the Local Media Foundation (LMF) to raise funds for what we consider the biggest issues facing our community — housing, homelessness and the future of Reno.

Our partnership means you can donate to us, through the Foundation. Your donations are tax deductible. 

I’d like to tell you how we plan to use the funds we raise. 

Home prices have skyrocketed in northern Nevada since the Great Recession. So what does this mean for the future of the city and its ability to recruit new businesses and employees into the region?

Also, who is being left behind? The city has taken steps to ensure the region’s most vulnerable residents have access to the basics, including building the new Nevada Cares Campus, a new tiny homes village and low-income dormitories. 

We want to know: Are these approaches working? 

This fund will be used to address these questions and more. We will interview regional experts, people affected by housing concerns, those behind city policies, and the people working on the frontlines of the housing crisis. 

This Is Reno’s award-winning reporting relies on community support–that’s where you come in. We are hoping to raise up to $20,000 for this project. The more we raise, the more resources we will be able to devote to this project. 

Any amount is appreciated.
