Tampa Bay Times launches new fund to help pay for local news

Readers can make tax-deductible contributions to the new Tampa Bay Times Journalism Fund

Over the past week, we’ve heard from scores of readers and neighbors in our community who want to keep the journalism of the Tampa Bay Times healthy.

We now offer two ways you can make tax-deductible contributions.

Today, we launched the Tampa Bay Times Journalism Fund. Contributions help sustain our newsroom — including our coverage of government, health, business, education, politics, sports and entertainment.

You can also directly support our investigative journalism by contributing to the Tampa Bay Times Investigative Fund, which helps pay for watchdog journalism efforts throughout the newsroom.

Online donations can be made at

You can also pay by check to the Poynter Institute, our nonprofit owner. On the subject line, please specify which Times fund you are supporting.
