SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you enjoy from Montclair Local, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, depends on community support – we exist because the old model of ad sales alone simply cannot not fund journalism at the level that we strive to provide. That’s why you’ve seen other local newsrooms downsize or shut down altogether. Montclair Local was created because we believe it is unacceptable; community is at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held accountable, when diverse lived experiences are shared – when the community is well informed.

Montclair seeks to increase $ 230,000 donors, members and donors between October 1 and December 31 to put us on a solid footing for 2022 and continue to support the hard work of our journalists into the New Year and beyond. Visit to see how we’re doing and make your contribution.
