Our nonprofit newsroom is reimagining local journalism in Boulder. We are committed to providing Boulder locals with in-depth local reporting and essential information to strengthen our community. We are 100 percent independent and dedicated to building a permanent, nonprofit business model that is sustainable for the long term.

Our journalism is free to consume for all. No paywalls. It’s vital to our public service mission that it stays that way, but we won’t be able to do this without community support.

If you already find our mission meaningful, and if you are able to contribute, please consider becoming a member today. Anyone who donates at any amount will be considered a BRL Member. Every dollar you contribute goes toward producing community-first journalism!


Your contribution is appreciated.
