Help us tell stories that matter

By donating to Mainstreet Daily News, you help journalists keep citizens informed, hold officials accountable and cover the most important topics in our community. Your contributions will equip our newsroom to better serve you and all our readers, starting with…
  • More reporters on the street
  • More local news on our community
  • More content on local sports, events and businesses

Spread the news: A little bit goes a long way. With your help, we can keep the presses running through hard times. We thank you for your contribution.

“All of our content is open to the community for free, but pavement-pounding journalism is not free. It’s actually quite expensive—so we need your help to keep it going. Please join our mission to save independent local news in our community.”

J.C. Derrick Publisher


“Local newspapers play a critical role in our communities, making us all stronger and more engaged citizens. Newspapers are dedicated to keeping you informed. Whether it is a local issue or a worldwide pandemic, they are there to provide consistent news coverage that you can trust.”

Jim Fogler  CEO, Florida Press Association
