Since founding the Palo Alto Weekly more than 40 years ago, we have built a network of three printed weekly newspapers, seven hyperlocal news websites and six email newsletters that serve a population of more than 500,000 people on the MidPeninsula and the East Bay's Tri-Valley. We've developed deep trust in our communities through our balanced and fact-focused journalism and are recognized annually for the quality of our work – 37 California Journalism Awards in 2022.
Now as a non-profit, we rely on community support to continue our mission and to innovate and expand. There are so many promising areas for growth — reaching new readers across all demographics and building deeper relationships through coverage that makes a difference in people's daily lives. As a nonprofit, we are especially excited about the prospect of partnering with foundations and major donors to expand coverage on topics like education, underserved communities, immigrants, health and the environment.
