BenitoLink is a nonprofit news website serving the residents of San Benito County. We were founded in 2012 with the financial help of Knight Foundation, county residents and the Community Foundation for San Benito County. In December 2015, we became a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit designed to serve all residents of San Benito County. BenitoLink is based in Hollister, California. The community supported nonprofit was designed to invite the voice of the whole community and provide nonpartisan news and information.
