We currently have our 2023 Summer FUNdraiser. We are focusing on investigative/in-depth, and informational reporting. A generous local couple is giving BenitoLink a great opportunity. Donations will be doubled with a match up to $10,000. Invest in investigation!
BenitoLink is community supported news. That means it takes all of us to pitch in and have the quality news source we want for our county. We’re here to report on our local leaders and make sure those in power are held accountable for their decisions. It takes paid reporters to sit in on meetings, demand straight answers and fact-check so you get the whole scoop.
Unfortunately, producing high quality, original news is expensive.
We’ll admit, we need your financial help so BenitoLink can continue to be the trusted information hub for San Benito County.

Reasons to Support Your Local Nonprofit News
Persistent journalism has an impact
Community support for “public news” or nonprofit news allows your BenitoLink reporters to cover the subjects that matter to you.
The voice of the community
Aside from being a website where our journalists report daily, BenitoLink is a platform for community discussion and sharing your interests.
Trusted community information
With the help of local nonprofits and grocery store owner Chang So, BenitoLink was able to get important information out in Spanish.
Locals reporting on local matters
Teams like ours are more familiar with the geographical location, the cultural and historical background of the coverage area than reporters working for large news companies.
Educating future journalists
BenitoLink brings on interns from all over the county, bringing with them a variety of interests.
Why our readers support BenitoLink
Despite a diverse population, we all need dependable information to elect our leaders and build a strong community.
Fostering an engaged community
BenitoLink events help the public understand the issues better and are an opportunity to build relationships.
An organization you can trust
Our primary goal is to provide valuable, sometimes life-saving information to the residents of San Benito County.
