How to donate to the Maroon

It's never been easier to donate to The Maroon. Simply Venmo @maroonnewspaper, mail a check to our office made out to The University of Chicago, or use the in-site donation function above.

Why donate?

The Maroon is in the process of a reset—not only due to the struggles the COVID-19 pandemic posed and continues to pose—but also because of a need to continue evolving in a rapidly changing media landscape. Because The Maroon is financially and editorially independent from the University, it relies on donations to keep operations afloat. Donations empower The Maroon to provide bi-weekly, print issues—a free and essential service to UChicago and the surrounding communities.

Donations will go directly towards financing The Maroon’s operations. Outside of general needs, these donations will support long-term projects, including: an oral history project in which reporters will interview seasoned college professors;  the creation of a Maroon mobile app; and the expansion of The Maroon’s one-of-a-kind work-study program—a way for low income students to participate meaningfully in student journalism without having to sacrifice their needed student income. 

As UChicago and the nation grapple with the ever-changing landscape of free speech and journalism, The Maroon will continue to seek out the truth and print it. This is not an easy task, nor a free one. Without your support, we cannot provide the journalism needed by our community.  Donate today,  and be part of The Maroon’s transition into the post-COVID digital age and help us continue being a place where free press and the truth thrive.
