Newspapers today are charging more and more for their content.
However, the work done by the award-winning Coachella Valley Independent has been—and always will be—available to all, free of charge.
We will never put up a paywall. We will never charge for a subscription.
However, we are now offering readers an opportunity to support us voluntarily in doing what we do, via the Supporters of the Independent Program.
Note that since the Independent is not a nonprofit entity, contributions are NOT tax-deductible. However, we here at the Independent really, really appreciate them!
