Become a Seven Days Super Reader 

The economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic present an existential challenge for Seven Days. Operating with diminished advertising revenue, we have been scrambling since March 2020 to continue to produce and distribute the award-winning newspaper our readers rely on.

Can you help us get through this difficult time?

If you like what we do and can afford to help pay for it, become a Seven Days Super Reader. With your support, we’ll keep Vermont journalism free and independent and our communities connected.

Super Reader FAQ

How much should I give?

It costs about $75,000 a week to produce 35,000 copies of Seven Days — including writers, designers, printing and overhead. That means: Each copy of the paper costs $2.14 per week, or roughly $8.50 per month, to produce.

We suggest giving $8 or $10 a month to help cover production costs. But whatever you feel comfortable with is best! Recurring donations — no matter how small — add up to reliable revenue that we can count on.

I don’t want to make a digital transaction. Can I mail you a check?

Absolutely! Please send the contribution along with your contact info (address/phone/email) to:

Seven Days
c/o Super Readers
PO Box 1164
Burlington, VT 05402-1164

Is Seven Days a nonprofit?

Seven Days is not a charitable, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, hence you cannot claim a tax deduction on your Super Reader contribution. We’re an employee-owned business. And while the journalism we offer in print and online is free to read, we’re asking people who appreciate it to help defray the cost of producing it. Think of it as a voluntary subscription rather than a donation to charity.

NEW: We are now able to accept tax-deductible donations of $2,000 or more through our fiscal sponsor, Journalism Funding Partners. If you're interested in giving at this level, please contact us directly at superreadersHQ@sevendaysvt.com or 802-865-1020, ext. 136.

Do Super Readers get a print subscription in the mail?

Unfortunately, no. But that can be arranged, using first- or third-class mail. If you wish to receive the paper by mail, please email our circulation director for rates and more info or call 802-865-1020, ext. 132.
