In today's news environment, we continue to try to make Exchange Magazine sustainable. To do this we need to deepen our relationship with our readers. Over the past several years, the revenues from our magazine have diminished and the technologies that connect us have moved advertising money away from news and journal organizations like Exchange Magazine. Like many news organizations, we know we need to find a way to keep our journalism open and accessible to everyone, regardless of where they live or what they can afford.

Our future is starting to look brighter. We have to grow and build a level of support for every year to come, which means we need to ask for your help. Ongoing financial support from our readers means we can continue pursuing the great stories that inspire us during challenging times. Factual reporting and honest profiles of real people have never been more critical. Exchange Magazine is editorially independent - with your support, we can continue to bring Exchange Magazine's independent journalism to the world.

If everyone who reads our articles, who likes the magazine andenjoys it, will help to support it, our future would be so much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Exchange Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
