MEMBERSHIP FOR ORGANIZATIONS

WE ARE CALIFORNIA’S LARGEST JOURNALISM BUREAU, FOCUSED ON STATEWIDE ISSUES THAT affect every resident of our golden state. We are a non-profit newsroom and rely on the support of our readers to comprehensively cover, decipher and analyze California’s politics and policies. Increasingly, from one end of California to the other, our 160+ media partners rely on our reporting and commentary to inform their communities about why Sacramento matters and how decisions made there can and do impact their lives. Our work appears regularly in all of the state’s major newspapers, the leading public radio stations, the major news aggregators, dozens of online publications and leading news apps.

Our members and sponsors choose to support CALmatters because they understand that informed and civic-minded Californians contribute to a better California. They also understand that they do not influence our coverage or mission.

We are now inviting associations, corporations, nonprofits and other groups to become members of CALmatters to show their support for politically-informed and active Californians – and for the ability of journalists to speak truth to power. Learn more about institutional memberships.

For more information, contact Priyanka at [email protected].
