Swim against the current this Black Friday

The Narwhal has big plans for 2021 — but we need your help to pull it all off. Will you join more than 1,800 monthly members who support our independent journalism?

It’s Black Friday: the biggest consumer blowout of the year. But instead of buying a new TV or splurging on a Fitbit, we’ve got a better idea for you!

Why not swim against the consumer current and support independent journalism by becoming a monthly member of The Narwhal today?

BONUS: become a monthly member by midnight tonight, and we’ll send you a sweet Narwhal toque. 

The Narwhal is ad-free, reader-funded and just 181 members away from our goal to reach 2,020 members by the end of 2020. What do you say? Become a Narwhal today.

This has been a strange and challenging year, hasn’t it? And yet, we must find the bright spots where we can. 

As traditional media outlets lay off even more reporters, The Narwhal is hiring journalists and reaching more Canadians than ever before. Thanks to the support of our monthly members, we have broken story after story this year and won two national journalism awards.  

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our readers have said. 

“If you are where we are headed then I’m hopelessly optimistic for Canadian journalism.” — David

“I’m glad we have people willing to work this hard on getting facts out in the open.” — Tom

“I really appreciate your approach to environment-related politics in Alberta. You avoid taking polarizing angles.” — Stephanie

We have even bigger things in store for 2021, but we need your support to make them happen. Will you help us get there?

Monthly members get special updates, sweet swag and can sleep well at night knowing they’re helping to pioneer a new model for in-depth, investigative Canadian journalism that holds power to account.

Become a monthly member for any amount today, and we’ll send you a Narwhal toque as a thank you! 

Tusks up,

Emma Gilchrist
Editor-in-Chief

P.S. We’re just 181 members away from our goal of reaching 2,020 members by the end of the year. Sign up by midnight tonight and we’ll send you a Narwhal toque!

We hear it time and time again:
“These are the stories that need to be told and you are some of the only ones telling them,” John, a new member of The Narwhal, wrote in to say.

Investigating stories others aren’t. Diving deep to find solutions to the climate crisis. Sending journalists to report from remote locations for days and sometimes weeks on end. These are the core tenets of what we do here at The Narwhal. It’s also the kind of work that takes time and resources to pull off.

That might sound obvious, but it’s far from reality in many shrinking and cash-strapped Canadian newsrooms. So what’s The Narwhal’s secret sauce? Thousands of members like John who support our non-profit, ad-free journalism by giving whatever they can afford each month (or year).

But here’s the thing: just two per cent of The Narwhal’s readers step up to keep our stories free for all to read. Will you join the two per cent and become a member of The Narwhal today?
