Will you Support the Connection on #Giving Tuesday?

Dear friend of Gettysburg Connection,

Yes, 2020 has been quite a year. From the toll of the coronavirus to an escalated political scene in Gettysburg and an intense presidential election, to the sadness we endure when we see so many businesses shuttered and so many people hungry and homeless, we have endured unprecedented turmoil. 

Throughout, journalists have chronicled events, demanded answers, and brought us information vital to our daily lives. Gettysburg Connection believes — as you do — that journalism is not optional for democracy to work. It is essential

And just as the work of journalism is essential, so is Gettysburg Connection’s role in supporting it. Our audience is local, but we strive to produce the same quality journalism you expect from any news source.

On this Giving Tuesday, we turn to you — our loyal newsletter readers — to support the Connection’s newsroom by making a donation today.

I Support Gettysburg Connection’s Work

During 2000 the U.S. has lost an alarming 7,000 journalism jobs. Sixty-six newsrooms have closed. Advertising revenue is down 42%. And now there are 200 counties across America without a local newspaper. 

And yet, in this time of isolation, confusion and misinformation — we are all reaching for news and information we can trust. As a reader, you’ve placed your trust in us.

Thank you for turning to the Connection as your journalism partner. And thank you for making a gift today to ensure our important work can continue to serve you in the new year ahead.

Happy holidays,
