When we launched Motor City Muckraker three years ago, our mission was to provide independent, objective news that isn’t covered by the local media.

That meant digging beneath the surface and uncovering mismanagement, corruption and abuse. It also meant highlighting Detroit’s forgotten voices and neighborhoods.

What started out as a small online news site has blossomed into an influential, award-winning organization featuring the work of more than a dozen contributing writers and photographers. The content is free for you, but providing it is costly.

Since we aren’t beholden to advertisers like the corporate media, we are asking for your support so we can continue providing high-quality news that matters.

Support Motor City MuckrakerIn return for your one-time, monthly or annual donation, we will post personalized “support ads” on the site, as shown on the left. You may customize the message on the typewriter and include your name, organization, business or any other name you wish to choose. The message can say anything you want that isn’t offensive or threatening.

Donations start at $5. For every $5, your ad will appear 500 times on Motor City Muckraker.

      Of course you can say that.

      • Sadly, I can’t. Too many characters. Going back to the drawing board.

        This is a great idea to generate revenue. Though, I would suggest offering price break(s) to help up the average donation. With the data you get from this round, you can set a price break between the mode and the next highest increment, and hopefully gain some marginal revenue.
