We have your back. We know you have ours.
Did you know that Maine is the only state with no out-of-state owners of a daily newspaper?
With your support, we’ll keep it that way.
The BDN has served Maine communities with local news and information for 133 years. When you support the Bangor Daily News, you join over 1,200 other donors who have protected 150 Maine jobs. You protect your right to community news and information. You help to make sure your neighbors, family and coworkers have the local, factual information they need to make informed decisions.
When newsrooms struggle, close and contract, communities lose independent oversight. That leads to higher taxes, more corruption, lower voter turnout, less protection of natural resources and less ability to understand the challenges faced by communities. That doesn’t have to be our story.
When you make a donation to the BDN, you help protect local journalism that brings Maine communities together.
Maine: The way news should be.
