The Tyee has chosen a unique business model. Will you support him?
If you’ve reached this part of the page, you’re probably an engaged reader. We hope the article above has added something to your day in some way.
Did you notice that you could read the entire article without encountering a paywall? Or even a ticker telling you how many free articles you have left this month, like you get on so many other news sites?
Here’s the secret to our success, and why we’re able to pay our reporters while keeping our articles free and open to everyone: Our Tyee Builders program Tyee Builders are readers who sign up to contribute an amount that suits them on a monthly basis so that our independent media can publish detailed reports five days a week.
While many other newsrooms are shrinking, we’ve expanded our team of reporters over the past few years. And we were able to do this thanks to a few thousand people who signed up for Tyee Builders.
Less than 1 in 100 of our average monthly readers are signed up to contribute on a monthly basis. If we reach 1% of our readers who sign up to become Tyee Builders, we can continue to grow and do even more.
If you enjoy what The Tyee publishes and want to help us do more, please sign up to become a Tyee Builder today. You choose the amount and you can cancel at any time. — Robyn Smith, Editor
