Dear FāVS Readers,
Between now and Tuesday SpokaneFāVS is trying to raise $1,200 to go toward our 2019 journalism budget. We hope as part of the Giving Tuesday movement, you’ll consider donating to our campaign.
The FāVS mission has always been to provide non-sectarian coverage of religion, spirituality and ethics in the Inland Northwest, but good journalism comes at a price. We pay our professional journalists to write stories, like our coverage of the Salish School, this story about Christianity, mental health and suicide and this story about the Buddhist approach to mindful eating, to name a few.
A donor has agree to match the first $100 raised. You can support us via our Facebook fundraiser or you can donate through the form below. And don’t forget, advertising is another way to support out work! However you choose to sponsor us, we thank you.[give_form id=”53376″ show_title=”true” show_content=”below” display_style=”onpage”]
Tracy Simmons is an award winning journalist specializing in religion reporting, digital entrepreneurship and social journalism. In her 15 years on the religion beat, Simmons has tucked a notepad in her pocket and found some of her favorite stories aboard cargo ships in New Jersey, on a police chase in Albuquerque, in dusty Texas church bell towers, on the streets of New York and in tent cities in Haiti.
Simmons has worked as a multimedia journalist for newspapers across New Mexico, Texas and Connecticut. Currently she serves as the executive director of SpokaneFAVS.com, a digital journalism start-up covering religion news and commentary in Spokane, Wash.
