Join the EG News Community of Supporters!

East Greenwich News is committed to telling the stories of our town and providing them for free – we have no paywall. That’s because we want everyone to be able to access our content. But that means we need support from you, our readers, to help us keep providing the news, information and feature stories you’ve come to rely on.

If you have never donated to EG News before, we need you more than ever – if at least 100 people donate for the first time, we will get an additional $1,000 from the Knight Foundation! So far this fund drive, we have had 125 first-time donors. Join them with a donation by Dec. 31. Any amount works.


Make a donation online, by Venmo (@EGNews) or check. If you want to donate by check, send to: EG News, 18 Prospect St., E.G., RI 02818 – all donations will be matched. (FYI – our EIN number is 82-2813220.)

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far as well as the people at the Institute for Nonprofit News, which is offering a $14,000 match. And thanks too to this year’s very special Community Matching Fund donors (see their names below). These are seven local community members who, in total, donated $5,000 to be able to match additional donations. This is how we build a sustainable local news website – thank you!

“We are so glad to have East Greenwich News to help us stay on top of local news.  I like the balance between the business side of EG and the family events / “good news” stories.  East Greenwich is a fabulous place to live, and EG News plays a critical role in keeping residents informed.”

– E. K.

“East Greenwich News does an amazing job of reporting on local issues.  The “Good News” stories are interesting (and not readily available elsewhere), and I greatly appreciate the detailed, non-partisan, objective reporting on town management and politics.”

– D. B.
