Community news is our mission and passion. Community support is our need.
We appreciate your interest in financially supporting the Arlington Mercury. You can pay with your paypal account or simply use a credit card. (Your credit card statement for this transaction will read: PAYPAL*ARLINGTONCO.)
We are a non-stock, non-profit corporation registered in Virginia and we have applied for 501(c)3 tax-exempt status with the IRS. We are still waiting on the IRS to give us an answer (they say we will hear in early 2013).
If the IRS OKs our status, then donations made to the Mercury will be tax-exempt for 2012 tax purposes. At this point, however, donations to the Arlington Community News Lab, Inc./Arlington Mercury are not tax exempt.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
If you do not want to financially support us, we would still love to get your contact information, and you will begin to receive our regular emails with the latest headlines.
Financial support is not the only kind we need. You might consider any number of volunteer opportunities.
- Join the Advisory Board (meets quarterly over coffee or dessert).
- Start a blog on our site about a favorite topic.
- Tell your friends about us! Word-of-mouth (or a nice, viral email) will always be our best help.
- Email Steve Thurston for more information: steve *at* arlingtonmercury *dot* org.
