Super Reader FAQ

How much should I give?

It costs about $75,000 a week to produce 35,000 copies of Seven Days — including writers, designers, printing and overhead. That means: Each copy of the paper costs $2.14 per week, or roughly $8.50 per month, to produce.

We suggest giving $10 a month to help cover production costs. But whatever you feel comfortable with is best! Recurring donations — no matter how small — add up to reliable revenue that we can count on.

Can I mail you a check?

Absolutely! Along with the check, please include your contact info (address/phone/email).

Is Seven Days a nonprofit? Can I write off my donation?

Seven Days is not a charitable, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, hence you cannot claim a tax deduction on your Super Reader contribution. We’re an employee-owned business. And while the journalism we offer in print and online is free to read, we’re asking people who appreciate it to help defray the cost of producing it. Think of it as a voluntary subscription rather than a donation to charity.

We are able to accept tax-deductible donations of $2,000 or more through our fiscal sponsor, Journalism Funding Partners. If you're interested in giving at this level, please contact us directly at or call Paula Routly at 802-865-1020, ext. 112.

Do Super Readers get a print subscription in the mail?

Unfortunately, no. But that can be arranged, using first- or third-class mail. If you wish to receive the paper by mail, please email our circulation director for rates and more info or call 802-865-1020, ext. 132.
