Reasons to donate to Marketplace

Marketplace Staff Dec 22, 2014

Marketplace turned 25 this year. That’s 25 years of bringing you the news, the numbers and explaining how Wall Street affects your street. That’s also 25 years of providing a public radio news service, thanks in large part to support from our listeners. A program of the nonprofit American Public Media Group, Marketplace has a staff dedicated to providing compelling and relevant content, day in and day out.

Follow along below as Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson and Marketplace Weekend host Lizzie O’Leary get their goofy on for a good cause: Inspiring you to make a donation. Help us reach our goal of 2,500 donors in honor of our 25th anniversary. Make a donation by Dec. 31 and your gift counts twice thanks to a dollar-for-dollar match by the Kendeda Fund.

How is anyone supposed to think around here with these thin walls?

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.

Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
