Root River Current: Doing it with you and your support!

Doing what? Connecting neighbors with neighbors. Introducing you to the people, organizations and activities that shape our lives. Celebrating all the things that uniquely define this region!

Root River Current is committed to producing high-quality journalism and storytelling that builds community in southeast Minnesota’s greater Root River valley—here’s how YOU can help…

  • Your gift of $82 makes ONE DAY of Root River Current available to you and your community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; stories are published once, but they ‘live’ online year-round.
  • Your gift of $120 equates to paying a dollar for each of the roughly 120 stories published annually; your gift of $240 is comparable to paying $2 for each of those 120 stories.
  • Your gift of $300 will cover the full cost of publishing a single story – a gift to the entire community.
  • Your gift of any amount – $25, $50 or more – extends the reach of every Root River Current story, every writer, every featured organization to readers throughout southeast Minnesota and beyond who share your enthusiasm for this region we call home.
