VTDigger is a nationally-recognized, born-digital nonprofit news organization. We are known for our award-winning investigative reporting, nitty-gritty approach to local and state news, and our entrepreneurial model.
At a time when the commercial local news industry is failing, VTDigger is one of a handful of nonprofit news organizations in the nation that has developed a promising model of sustainable funding for journalism.
We have a startup ethos and a deep commitment to our mission, which is to shine a light on problems that have an impact on Vermonters’ lives by exposing the truth, cutting through the noise of echo chamber spin and reviewing the actions of public officials.
VTDigger provides regional coverage of the state, and we are poised to ensure that readers in every community in Vermont get the coverage they deserve as the local news landscape continues to diminish.
Monthly readers: 600,000
Annual Budget: $4 million
