It is true, we do not charge for our service, our stories, our event calendar, or any other form of content we put out. We do not plan on ever going to a subscription model for our website. We do, however, accept donations! This can now be done in two ways.
For those who appreciate and enjoy our content, perhaps you would consider a small donation to keep the site running. Donations could be one-time or monthly.
Become a Facebook Supporter
This is pretty straight forward… login to Facebook and go to our page… hit the blue button and for $2.99 per month, you get access to our breaking news posts which ONLY go out to our Supporters (fires, car crashes, other informational posts). You will also get access to the private group associated when you become a supporter.

How Much Should I Donate?
That is entirely up to you. Whether its $1 per month ($12 per year), $25 annually, or more, ECT is forever grateful for any donation while believing in this product.
By donating, you will help EastCountyToday continue to stay online and grow. We hope to continue to be your number one news source for providing local news in East Contra Costa County.
Keeping News Local
Local newspapers and websites are withering away each year. In small towns and communities across the United States, a local paper seems like it is becoming a thing of the past, but our goal is to keep the community informed on what is happening in our local government, schools, and community.
Every donation counts and again, thank you for your support.
