Support Local Journalism

Join the RFT Press Club community for as little as $5 per month.

Since its founding in 1977, the Riverfront Times has been dedicated to providing fearless, high-quality local journalism, especially in times of crisis. As a small, independent news organization, we are facing an unprecedented challenge. We have launched the RFT Press Club to create a community around our readers and strongest supporters at a time that local media across the country has been struggling, and to help underwrite our work in light of the financial crisis catalyzed by the coronavirus pandemic.

At a time when our community needs fiercely independent reporting more than ever, we now depend on the support of our readers more than ever to help sustain our mission. Joining the RFT Press Club is one way you can help, and in return we will be providing a growing array of benefits and privileges.

We invite you to join our growing community of members to help sustain our mission of providing our readers free and full access online and in print. With your support, the Riverfront Times can continue providing the best local reporting and enterprise coverage we can. And we look forward to the time when we all come out of this together.
