Join ChicoSol’s border-crossing community Become a member now and support independent journalism

We depend on donations — both one-time and monthly — from readers like you. ChicoSol is community-run, not-for-profit, and free of corporate advertising and paywalls. We accept tax-deductible donations to our North Valley Community Foundation fund. Why donate now?

  • Your donation today will help us make the leap to becoming a 501(c)(3) independent nonprofit.
  • Your donation ensures the future of the area’s only outlet specializing in investigative reporting.
  • ChicoSol is local and driven by the need for in-depth journalism that nourishes citizen participation. We publish in Spanish when possible and serve the information needs of minority communities.

Donors receive email alerts listing new postings as well as a brief note from the editor for a six-month period after making their contribution — unless they ask to be removed from that list.

Even if you are unable to donate at this time, write us at and ask to be made a “subscriber” if you would like a monthly email listing new posts.
