Donors Make a Difference!

January 24, 2024

We extend our deepest thanks to all the people and companies who supported The Bedford Citizen during November and December. With your help, we raised more than $35,000 during the NewsMatch campaign.

The Bedford Citizen brings local news to your virtual doorstep, but we cannot do it alone. Bringing the news of Bedford to the community would not be possible without the support of all of our donors, readers, volunteers, board members, and writers. Your generosity helps us fulfill our mission to inform and engage the Bedford community.
