WHAT YOU KNOW
You know that we are a daily email newsletter that connects Washingtonians to their city, to its communities, and to one another. We've had an amazing first five years, and we want to be able to give you more—more original writing, more events, more connection.

We rely on sponsors to pay our ragtag team of awesome contributors, but after the costs of things like Mailchimp, web hosting, and promotional materials, we need new resources to expand what we do. More importantly, we’d like our readers to be the real stakeholders as we grow. Which leads us to...

WHAT YOU DO
Check out our new Patreon and sign up to support us! Pledging a couple bucks a month makes a huge difference for an independent media project. In order to create, deliver, and expand 730DC, we need your support.

Your support will allow us to:
  • pay our contributors more
  • bring you more original writing
  • launch our online store with merch you’ll want to wear
  • host more reader engagement events so you can meet your neighbors in real life and build a kinder, more connected city

It means one-off side projects (zines! music showcases!) can be more regular. It means room for risk. And it means straight up paying people for the labor and love they put into this 
Tiers
Loyal Reader
$2 or more per month

For the price of buying us a gas station coffee a month, our Loyal Readers get stickers and the knowledge that you’re part of something big, communal, and exciting. 

Early Birds
$7.30 or more per month

Our beloved birds get everything in the previous tier, plus:

  • You’re the first to know and/or get tickets when we host events
Orly Blorbs
$15 or more per month

“Orly blorbs" is what "early birds" became after a tipsy night of brainstorming.

You get everything in the previous tiers, plus:

  • $10 discount on anything from our new store (730dc.myshopify.com) 
Blurbpy Birbs
$100 or more per month

We were gonna name this the "The Billionaire Who Buys Us and Shuts Us Down For Unionizing" tier but it was too many characters.


Everything in the previous tiers, plus:

  • We will literally call you at 7:30am and personally read you the newsletter on a date of your arranging
