Help Eugene Weekly 

Eugene Weekly  has long almost entirely relied on advertising revenue to pay our staff and overhead. And more recently, reader  support has been part of what kept the paper printing.

On Dec. 28, there was no print Eugene Weekly. It was the first time in more than 20 years that we didn’t print. But we are fighting like hell to print another one. 

Shortly before Christmas, we discovered that EW has been the victim of embezzlement at the hands of someone we once trusted. Eugene Weekly is now heavily in debt and has laid off its staff as we fight to come back from this. 

We put measures in place to make sure this doesn’t happen again, and are asking for your help. 


Support Local and Vocal Journalism

Good journalism takes dedication and digging. It requires long hours, hard work and passion. And it takes money. As our mission has grown at Eugene Weekly, and with the ongoing social, political and economic stresses, we are asking for your help.

Corporate giants have taken over traditional news outlets here and elsewhere around the country. That means independent, locally owned newspapers such as Eugene Weekly have assumed a much larger role as a watchdog for democracy.

We are a free paper, and we don’t have a paywall on our website. EW relies on our small-but-mighty staff, but we also feature the work of many of Lane County’s best freelancers and student journalists. We don’t want to go away, but we could use your help.


Here’s how to help:

  • You can support EW by just picking up a paper, supporting our advertisers and telling them you saw their ad “in the Weekly.” You can even offer to take out an ad for nonprofits and businesses you love.
  • You can also support us with a monetary contribution using this page, by mail: 1251 Lincoln St, Eugene OR., 97401, or by phone: 541-484-0519. All contributions goes directly to supporting our journalism. If you contribute this way, your contributions are not tax deductible.
  • If you would like to make a tax deductible contribution, then please check out our TRIPS nonprofit arm that seeks to support Eugene Weekly and other papers in the Willamette Valley.
