How do we use your contributions? Members help us cover operating costs like Web hosting and maintenance. We pay stipends for investigative stories that require many hours of challenging work. With additional reader support, we will fund scholarships for student interns and increase the frequency and variety of our posts.

Launched in 2007 as an English-Spanish magazine, ChicoSol has had dozens of stories reprinted by other outlets. Here are some of our recent accomplishments that were possible because of community support:

  • Collaborated with Orland Unified School District and other organizations to hold an immigration information fair in March 2017;
  • Won reporting fellowships from New America Media, a national ethnic media collaborative;
  • Received the 2016 Ethnic Media merit award for immigration coverage for a story produced by a student intern;
  • Produced an investigative series on policing practices in Butte County;
  • Participated on a panel at a June 2017 national journalism conference in Phoenix;
  • Became a partner in the ProPublica “Documenting Hate” national database project;
  • Collaborations with community radio station KZFR, the Chico News & Review, New America Media and other outlets.
