 Tuesday is known as “Giving Tuesday” and we would like to invite you to consider Cowboy State Daily for your giving.

If you are reading this right now, this means you are a subscriber to our free service.  But it takes money to provide this service and Giving Tuesday makes a lot of sense as a time to donate.

Cowboy State Daily has become very popular.  There are now 10,056 subscribers and we consider all of you to be the owners of Cowboy State Daily.

That’s because we are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity.  We have no owners in the traditional sense of business.  But there really are owners – Cowboy State Daily is owned by the people who use our service – YOU.

To keep this news service going, we need your financial support.
Since being asked to be publisher 11 months ago, it never occurred to me how important it is to stress who owns Cowboy State Daily.

With ownership comes responsibility.

That is why we are publishing this message looking toward Giving Tuesday. If you like reading Cowboy State Daily and want it to prosper and expand, please consider making a tax-deductible donation this year.  

As publisher, it is my job to raise money and keep the site going. Little did we know when taking this job that the twin negative dynamos of COVID-19 and a faltering Wyoming economy would smack us in the nose.

And yet, we keep growing. Our readers love what we are doing.  Not only are we growing on our website and on our Facebook page, but we are now averaging over 1,000 new email subscribers each month.

And with the help of forward-thinking advertisers like Black Hills Energy, Carbon County Tourism, SageWest Medical, and others, we have generated a small amount of advertising. We are always looking for more and ask that if you know anyone needing statewide advertising to contact us.

Grants from the Humanities Council and the Wyoming Business Council have also made it possible to keep publishing.

Now we are at the end of the year and since all donations to Cowboy State Daily are tax-deductible, we are optimistic that our readership and our other supporters will step up and help fund us for the upcoming year.  

If you decide to include us in the organizations that you support, our goal is to make you happier that you donated to us than any of your other choices.

We welcome your ideas on specific sponsorship of stories or features. Just let us know. We welcome your input.  Please tell us what you think of Cowboy State Daily.

Please consider clicking on the “donate” section on this newsletter or our web site to make a credit card donation.  Send your checks to Cowboy State Daily, Box 900, Lander, Wy 82520.  Thanks!

If you have already donated – thanks!  Please send this message to your friends who you think would be interested in supporting Cowboy State Daily.
