Welcome

Help build a better business model for journalism

Contrib lets people pay as much as they want to newsrooms and journalists they trust for the work they already do. We built it because digital advertising is broken and subscriptions can’t save the day. You can help by joining this beta.

Contribute to sources you trust

Make free test contributions with the test card number we provide you at checkout. Search by name or Twitter handle to see if a news source is already in our system. Search or filter by city or state to find local sources. Suggest them if you can’t.

Get paid more for your work

If you’re an independent journalist or represent an organization that practices accountable journalism, we built our platform for you. Authenticate to apply for or learn about monetization with Contrib.
