I know that on this #GivingTuesday everyone is asking you for money. There are many great organizations here in Spokane, and globally, that deserve your generosity. I hope you agree with me that SpokaneFAVS is one of them.

Our writers are creating a needed dialogue in this community about faith and ethics — both online and offline. Our two national journalism awards prove that we do good journalism, and we all know how much that is needed in today’s media industry.

If our readers can donate just $10 a month to SpokaneFAVS we can keep our Coffee Talks going and keep the site running. If our readers donate $20 a month, yours truly can get a part time salary. And if we can get enough of you to donate $50 a month, we can create  a full-time, salaried position here at FAVS. That means we can do better journalism, do more work in the community, improve this website and pursue the numerous other ideas we know will make SpokaneFAVS truly unique and cutting edge.

To schedule a recurring donation via PayPal to SpokaneFAVS, or to make a one-time donation, click here.

Alternatively, to make a tax-deductible contribution you can donate to the SpokaneFAVS Fund at the Inland Northwest Community Foundation. Once on the page, use the dropdown box to scroll down to Spokane Faith and Values.

Thank you so much for embracing SpokaneFAVS the past two years, and I’m excited to venture into the new year with you!

– Tracy
