As a not-for-profit, every penny The Gazette receives goes directly back into the paper.

Donating is a great way to support us if you live outside of Leicester, or want to help take The Gazette's journalism to the next level.

Your donation directly fuels The Gazette's mission of delivering high-quality journalism to the public. With your contribution, we can make a meaningful impact and ensure the longevity of local journalism.

Should I become a member instead?

The best way to support us is by becoming a member. With 2,000 members contributing £4 per month, we would have sufficient funds to support three full-time staff members and meet all operational expenses.

Why donate?

  1. Empower independent journalism: Every penny you donate goes directly back into the paper, enabling us to continue providing comprehensive coverage across Leicester — we need around £2,000 per year to keep publishing.
  2. Accessibility for all: Your generous donations help us keep running our accessibility tool, Access Angel, ensuring that everyone can stay informed and engaged with the issues that matter — this costs around £900 per year to run.
  3. Pay our team: The Gazette's is run by volunteers. With your support, we can pay everyone working with us a Real Living Wage and produce even more impactful stories — we would need roughly £25,000 per year to pay for one staff member full-time.

How much should I donate?

  • One-time contribution: Make a one-time donation of any amount to show your commitment to high-quality journalism. Every contribution makes a difference.
  • Regular contributions: By setting up a monthly donation, you provide consistent support that allows us to plan for the future and maintain our operations effectively.
