2020 Vision

You can Support the Ojai Valley's local independent free press with a gift. 

We thank you for considering giving financially to the Ojai Valley News; reporting for the people since 1891.

We offer a vital resource to our community by providing high-quality independent local news reporting, critical information in times of crisis and spotlight community needs and local interests.

We report as a watchdog for the people, shine light and hold to account our government, institutions and local agencies and businesses.

We question, investigate and unpack the complex issues we face with unbiased reporting, preserve history, encourage community conversations, promote arts and events and remember our townspeople when they pass away.

Times have changed for local news, the old business models are no longer feasible; now community members, not just advertisers, need to make the decision to support local independent news if it is to continue.

The stakes are high; the future of our newspaper is inextricably linked to the future of our community.

Your support of local independent news ensures that democracy is working at the local level by providing information and preserving the public’s right “to know.”

We can use your help to meet expenses, improve reporting, and update our website.
