Subscribe to the Racine County Eye, help a nonprofit

Racine County Helps
Support local journalism AND earn advertising for your favorite nonprofit with Racine County Helps by becoming a platinum or gold subscriber.

At the Racine County Eye, we love helping our community solve big issues. We’ve written hard-hitting stories about the We Energies Oak Creek Power Plant, the use of eminent domain in the Foxconn development, the lead pipes in Racineopioid abuse crisis, and mental health access issues in Racine. Our coverage around these topics and more will continue.

And over 50,000 people come to our news website every month.

But wait, there’s more…

Our focus this year will also be on growing a resource page around employment in Racine County to help our community connect with training resources, learn about job opportunities, and get more news about the job market. We’ll feature companies, highlight local talent, bring experts into the conversation around employment and tell you who is hiring.

Why? Because the City of Racine has the second highest unemployment rate in the state, but residents here have a significant opportunity ahead of them with new development in our area. But you can’t take advantage of an opportunity you don’t know about. So we want to be Racine County’s go-to source around these topics. But we need your help today so that we can grow. And we’re willing to sweeten the pot for local nonprofits who often lack resources to advertise their events and their organization.

That’s why we came up with a voluntary subscription campaign that helps nonprofits bank free advertising called Racine County Helps.

How it works

The more people subscribe to the Racine County Eye at the platinum, gold or silver levels, the more advertising the nonprofit of your choice receives. Nonprofits can bank the advertising, but it expires after Dec. 31, 2018.

The platinum level (annual) is $240. It allows for 15 days of free advertising to a nonprofit from our list. The donor and a representative from the non-profit will be able to attend News Up Racine County, an annual event that builds community conversations around the news.

The gold level (annual) is $180. It allows for 10 days of free advertising to be donated to a nonprofit listed below. The representative from the non-profit will be able to attend News Up Racine County, an annual event that builds community conversations around the news.

The cash value of this offer is not redeemable. Ad-types are limited to either a Facebook event ad, Facebook ad, or designed 300 by 250 ad.
