The Badger Project is 100% nonprofit and ad-free, and relies on donations, grants and sales of stories to pay our journalists.
We encourage you to set up a recurring, monthly donation to help us do this important work for the long term!
Any amount helps!
The Badger Project uses The Center for Community Stewardship in Madison as a fiscal sponsor. We have our nonprofit status through them, and so they can provide you with receipts for tax deductions. All donations go through them.
This is a better option for those who want to make large contributions, because The Badger Project will not have to pay a processing fee.
Please make checks out to our nonprofit fiscal agent, The Center for Community Stewardship, with “The Badger Project” written in the memo line, and send to:
The Center for Community Stewardship
116 N. Few St. Suite 3
Madison, WI 53703
Thanks for your support!
