Why does The Eastern Herald ask its readers and viewers for support?

The Eastern Herald is published by a small group of journalists and publishers. The group premise of The Eastern Herald is this: if good journalism is to survive and thrive, it can only do so by being both editorially and financially independent. This means relying principally on contributions from readers and concerned citizens who have no interest other than to sustain a space for quality journalism.

How does a recurring support plan help The Eastern Herald?

Newsgathering and publishing is a human-intensive exercise. Any report published by The Eastern Herald requires at least 4-5 individuals to actively work on it.
