Today is #GivingTuesday — or, as we like to call it around here, #GivingNewsDay. It's a day to celebrate and champion quality journalism of the sort we’ve been providing for more than eight years. 

As an independent, nonprofit news organization, The Texas Tribune always puts its mission of informing and engaging Texans first. And frankly, it’s amazing what our reporters do with the resources we have, working around the clock with the utmost professionalism and integrity. 

Over the past year, their work has impacted policymaking in the Texas House and Senate, exposed malfeasance and, in one prescient case, predicted the disastrous effects of a hurricane. 

Simply put, Texas needs The Texas Tribune, and we can't do our work without folks like you, who see the value and step up to help. 

The 2018 election cycle is already underway, and the Texas Legislature's list of things to do in 2019 is piling up. The 2020 presidential race is just around the corner. Will you donate now to invest in The Texas Tribune’s coverage of these important stories?

And one more thing: This #GivingNewsDay, you have the rare chance to double your impact. Boeing is generously doubling any donations made today to The Texas Tribune — up to $5,000. 

Help us maximize this match. Give by midnight and your investment goes twice as far for the news you need. 

With gratitude,
Evan Smith 
Chief Executive Officer
