We asked (and asked, and asked) and you stepped up to make this year's reader drive a success! As of this morning, readers and supporters like you have helped raise $35,114. Thank you!

Here's how we'll put your donations to work

Even though most of the articles you read on GGWash are written by volunteers, it costs money to keep the blog running. We also need funding to influence and organize around policy change that reflect our shared urbanist vision for the region, and to provide political endorsements from an urbanism perspective.

Greater Greater Washington truly could not keep up our work without support from readers like you. Thank you!

Did you miss out on donating?

Did you keep meaning to donate, but forgot to actually do so? No problem! A recurring donation of $5 or $10 a month is a great way to support Greater Greater Washington beyond the reader drive (and we'll still give you the swag!) Having reliable income from readers throughout the year helps us manage expenses and budget smarter.

We hope to see you tonight!

Staff, contributors, committee members, and a few VIPs are gathering at Apollo apartments on H Street NE this evening to celebrate. If you RSVP'd we hope to see you there. If you didn't, we'll catch you at an upcoming happy hour or other event.

Sarah Guidi was Greater Greater Washington's Managing Director from 2015 to 2018. She now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her family.
