FAQs

Why are donations needed?
Local news is facing a financial crisis — and even more so for Black media outlets. The giant technology companies have gobbled up much of the advertising revenue that once went to employ local reporters, photographers, editors, etc. So in a bid to stay alive, many news outlets have turned to putting their content behind paywalls. At QCity Metro, we want to keep our content free. Your donations help us do that.

How are donations used?
Your generosity helps us pay the many bills associated with producing QCity Metro and its Morning Brew newsletter — salaries, taxes, technology, bookkeeping, venders, insurance, etc. Even for a small media outlet like ours, those expenses add up. Your donations also help us plan for growth.

What do donors get?
We hope you give to support our mission. The Black Press has long been a force for social and economic justice in America, and Qcitymetro is honored to continue that tradition. Launched in 2008, we were Charlotte’s first Black-owned media organization created in the digital age. That said, donors also are enrolled in our Press Club. (A membership list is printed below.)

What comes with Press Club membership?

  • Entry into members-only giveaways
  • Discount ticket offers
  • Members-only meetups (when health conditions allow for in-person gatherings)
  • Invites to special events

How long does membership last?
Either one or two years, depending on the plan you select. Your donation/membership is renewed automatically, but you may cancel at any time.

In addition to donations, what other ways can I help?
You can tell friends and coworkers about QCity Metro and share our content on your social channels. Nothing beats word of mouth from a trusted friend. In addition:
