Support BenitoLink. You can make a difference!

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.

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 communtiy

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.

BenitoLink brings on interns from all over the county, bringing with them a variety of interests.
