The Illinois Eagle is an online newspaper covering the LGBTQ communities of Illinois and national news that affects us. We do the Eagle as a labor of love, but to serve the state like it deserves, we need help. It costs in both time and money to go to events, keep up the website and reach out to everyone. We spend our own money for equipment (cameras, smartphones, etc.) and supplies (gas, pens, paper, batteries, etc.).

We can't do it alone. So we're asking you for help. Think of it as LGBTQ public radio. For less than a beer at a bar, you can help us serve the state. What you give will help play for gas, batteries, allow us to upgrade our equipment, improve our hosting and social media, and allow us, maybe, to start paying our staff. Maybe not pay them what they're really worth, but at least show them that what they do is valued. So please, donate what you can and help give Illinois the kind of publication and representation it deserves.

Goals
$24 of $500 per month
If we can get $500 a month, then we will stop charging for ads. There will be a limit to how many we have at once, BUT we will no longer charge for any ad and will drop our affiliate ads. At that point, we will have enough money coming in to outweigh any potential ads we sell. But ONLY if we get to $500 per month and we have that for at least two months. We get to that, then all ads are free. Business, group, event, whatever.
