Why support The Source Weekly?
You’re the one waiting by the blue box when the Source arrives mid-week.
You’re the one posting comments and sharing important stories with your friends.
You’re already a regular reader—but you might be asking yourself: What more can I do to support fearless, independent journalism in my community? How can I help local journalists remain the watchdogs of local governments? How can I support local journalism, learn more about my community and get great stuff like member only discounts through our Perks program, first dibs on concert tickets, a dedicated newsletter for members and a direct line to our editorial staff. And so much more!
It looks like you’re already a Source Insider—so why not make it official?
A vibrant, relevant publication that brings you what you’re looking for
Since 1997, the Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally-owned, family-owned newspaper, packed full of information on local events, impactful news stories and award-winning feature and editorial coverage. Sadly, it is now the only one. In 2019, we began bringing even more timely news and information to Central Oregon with the launch of the Cascades Reader, our daily digital newspaper.
Our publication has never been stronger, and we continue to grow, but we need to do more. You can help us build upon our award-winning feature and investigative reporting by accepting our invitation to become a Source Insider.
Not only will you be supporting our mission to be Central Oregon’s “Source” of news, culture and opinion coverage, but you’ll help build upon that tradition and add even more investigative journalism to our coverage.
The Source Insider membership program puts you at the forefront of our coverage. Every Source Insider has the opportunity to take part in our Editor’s Forums, where we gain critical local information that helps shape our coverage. We also routinely poll Source Insiders about what matters most to you and yours.
Take a look at the sponsors for the events around Central Oregon and you’ll start to notice something: The Source Weekly is a proud supporter and partner in many of the biggest and most popular local events—meaning we can offer Insider access to many of the events you already like to attend.
Source Insiders receive the first notifications about free and discounted events around Central Oregon, before we offer them to anyone else. As well as exclusive VIP moments at existing events.
Want to meet the Director of Theater in the Park? Have aspirations to sip beer with local Bend brewers? This is a smattering of what Insiders will enjoy.
