Help launch East Bay Exclusive!

East Bay Media Group is launching a new project — East Bay Exclusive — to bring you more in-depth, insightful and investigative journalism. This new team will look for stories that impact quality of life, public spending, education and the environment, throughout this remarkable region. 

We are hoping to raise $50,000 by the end of 2021, so we can launch in 2022. All of the money  will be used to recruit and staff the new  investigative team. We will also listen to readers, and you can help shape the stories we pursue — all ideas are welcome. If you believe in the mission, please consider supporting our efforts.
