The Mirror's Why I Give Campaign
Please donate today.

Dear Friends,

A contentious 2015 Connecticut Legislative session drew to a close just before midnight Wednesday with the dramatic passage of a fiercely fought state budget. Our staff worked into the early hours Thursday to provide the same comprehensive, insightful coverage of those last hours that they delivered all session.

And our audience responded in record numbers over those chaotic final days.

This is just another reminder of why The Mirror exists.

Our readers have also reminded us through our “Why I Give” campaign, which ends today. Over the last few months, we’ve turned the tables a bit and asked our readers why they donate to The Mirror, and to a larger extent, The Connecticut News Project Inc., which also publishes Trend CT, our data publication, and CT Viewpoints, our opinion offering.

You may have noticed we shared those thoughts almost every weekday through our morning briefing and social streams. They all have reasons why they donate and support nonprofit journalism at its finest. As a registered 501(c)(3), this is how we operate.

We hope at least one thought resonates with you enough to donate and support our organization with a tax-deductible donation.

Please donate here today. Thank you for your support.
