Help us help Kamloops.
Support your Local Media.
The Kamloops This Week Reader Support Program has been a heartwarming success, with nearly 1,100 individual donors coming forward so far to support local news.
Now we’re launching Phase 2 — and it involves giving back!
As part of our mission to connect and inform our community, Kamloops This Week already gives hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in in-kind advertising support to more than 100 non-profit organizations, charities and local events.
To say thank-you to our generous supporters, we’re increasing that commitment to provide a digital advertising package for every donation of $25 or more to a local charity of the donor’s choice, as follows:
$25 – $49
1-week advertising spot on KTW’s daily email newsletter.
$50 – $99
5,000 ad impressions on the Kamloops This Week website.
$100 – $199
10,000 ad impressions on the Kamloops This Week website.
20,000 ad impressions on the Kamloops This Week website
That means we’ll be giving over $200,000 more in online advertising to our local charities thanks to the generous support of Kamloops This Week readers like you.
If you make a recurring monthly donation, we’ll count your donation’s value over a full year — if you contribute $5 per month, that’s a $60 donation.
To the nearly 1,100 donors who have already contributed to us: this goes for you as well. We’ll be in contact with all of you who donated through our online support site by email to send you a link to indicate what local charity you’d like to support.
If you donated by phone, mail or drop-off, please call our office at (250) 374-7467 and leave us your name and the local charity you’d like your donation to support.
If you’d like to Support Local Media and Support Local Charities at the same time, join us!
Kamloops This Week has always been a free product and will continue to be free. This is a means for those who can afford to support local media to help ensure those who can’t afford to can get access to trusted local information.
You can make a one-time or a monthly donation of any amount and cancel at any time.
We take online donations through a PayPal payment portal – you can donate by credit card without a PayPal account using this link. PayPal will ask you for your phone number in order to process credit card payments – this number is not provided to us unless we need to request it from Paypal to contact them regarding your charge. If you are not comfortable providing that information to PayPal, please consider making your credit card donation to us directly by phone (see below).
