We would like to thank all supporters of independent media that have donated throughout these 31 days. CIMA is made up of a wide variety of media organizations, from go-to neighborhood news organizations like Growing Community Media to youth media organizations, like Mild Sauce, who are planting the storytelling seed into Chicago’s youth and exposing them to incredible opportunities to attend and report on events.

We have outlets like Paseo Podcast, creating independently produced podcasts highlighting the voices of Chicago’s Puerto Rican community, and Chicago In Arabic, that tells the story of Chicago’s Arab Community.

What unites all of CIMA is a commitment to authentic, independent media that represents the true diversity of Chicago. Together, these 43 newsrooms fill in the coverage gaps of mainstream media.

Your donation will help your city’s local journalists continue to produce news that informs you and your neighbors on a grander scale that represents our city to the world.
