Keep Hello, West Chester going

Do you love living in a vibrant, engaged community? Me too! That’s what Hello, West Chester is all about. Each week on the website and in the newsletter, you will find news and events happening in our community – the good, the bad, and the sometimes dilapidated. 

Life is not all sunshine and rainbows and it’s not honest to make it look that way just to attract a slate of advertisers. If you read regularly and would like to see Hello, West Chester continue (and maybe even grow? I currently have an events editor on my wish list), I would welcome the support.*

Below are a few options, if you are able.

Thank you for considering. I like what we’ve got here – let’s keep it going!

Wish list

I love bringing you the news each week and I have been doing it for quite a while in my free time –  after the kids went to bed. But that was not sustainable. (I was a bit of a mess.) So now I am making a real go of it and to do that I will need support. If you would like to help ensure the West Chester Roundup is around next week, I would love that but before you do I thought you might like to know what you are supporting both today and in the future. 

Sustaining operations: 

Monthly costs – Digital platforms, newsletter tools, URL licensing, analytics tools, news subscriptions, photo editing software, outreach and my time

Wish list:

  • Digital support – help to optimize these new tools to improve the user experience
  • Part-time Events editor/intern – perhaps a WCU student who can help gather events and confirm all information is corrent and nothing has changed. 
  • Proofing support – human or digital
  • Newletter builder – TIme saver!
  • Graphics tool
  • Social support
