Community Owned. Local News. Burke County, NC.

What's the deal with community ownership?


It means that the community will own The Paper through memberships, much like the Green Bay Packers are owned by its community.

The Paper  is owned by the community through tiered subscription memberships. It is funded by paid print and digital subscriptions, single copy retail sales, and purpose-specific funding from the Western North Carolina Journalism Foundation WNCJF), a registered and IRS-approved 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor.
