The Clayton Crescent is uniquely positioned to fill the gap in coverage for half a million residents of Clayton County and the Southside. We need your support to make it happen!

Donate

We ended Phase One several months ago. We did not reach our  $2,000 goal to cover initial licensing, subscriptions, 501(c)(3) preparations, website development, memberships, and marketing expenses. Robin Kemp has fronted these expenses out of her own pocket.

Then Twitter happened and people like you have generously donated to make nonprofit news a reality for Clayton County and the Southern Crescent just south of Atlanta,

We are in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) recognition. Once that’s done, we’ll be moving into Phase Two, which will be our membership drive (similar to public broadcasting). You will then be able to choose between one-time and monthly support, at a level that works for you, and that you will be able to take off of your taxes.

Please give the amount that works for you and share our campaign with your friends on social media.

FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY UPDATE: 

As of Nov. 15, 2020, we have received $43,265 in donations, including Phase One. We are in the process of setting up accounting software and a working budget and will update the financials soon. 

We have some minor expenses that have not yet been submitted, mostly business cards, stickers, and parking for press conferences–nothing extravagant.

All GoFundMe and Facebook Phase One donations have been placed into a separate account. Those funds will remain in the account until the nonprofit board is in place and approves their disbursement and the balance is $1,675.60. This includes $25 cash to open the account prior to the electronic transfers from GFM and FB and -$18.00 for paper checks on the account. The amounts deposited reflect fees taken out by GFM and FB before the transfers.
