Free To Read... But Not To Produce

Help keep journalism in Erie, PA alive by making a contribution to the Erie Reader.


We need your help today.

You can't put a price on critical local journalism, that's why the Reader has always been free. Over the past ten years we've been able to grow into Erie's only local source for news, arts, and culture, and the role we play in the community has never been more important as it is today. The need for quality local coverage is greater than ever before, and we're asking for your help.

The Erie Reader is completely free to access online and read in print. Will you consider a voluntary donation to help sustain our operation and continue providing free access to great local journalism to everyone?

Thank you for your support!
