Bar News Masthead

Do you value the in-depth reporting of the Bar News? We could not do it without the Granite State News Collaborative.

Today they are asking for your help to keep quality journalism alive in New Hampshire.

THE GRANITE STATE NEWS COLLABORATIVE is a collective of more than 15 local media, education and community partners, including the New Hampshire Bar News. We work together to produce and share news stories on the issues that most impact our state. The hope is that together we can provide more information to more communities across New Hampshire than we could individually.

Local news is more important than ever right now. However, the financial impact of COVID-19 has hit many newsrooms across the state hard. Yet, they haven’t stopped getting vital information to the communities they serve. The goal at the Collaborative over these past few months has been to help our outlets give their readers more news and a deeper understanding of what’s happening in their state.

All donations to the Collaborative during NHGives Day of Giving will be used to hire freelance journalists, the majority of whom are local furloughed reporters or those who lost freelance work due to cuts.

The New Hampshire Bar Association is one of a growing number of Granite State News Collaborative partners across the state. It is through these partnerships, which include The Concord Monitor, Business NH Magazine, The Conway Daily Sun, The Eagle-Tribune, and The Keene Sentinel, to name just some, that local journalists are able to connect communities across the state like never before.

Please help keep local journalism strong in New Hampshire.
