Support local solutions. Support independent investigative journalism.

Searchlight New Mexico, nonpartisan and nonprofit, is a free voice among sources of news. With your help, Searchlight’s investigative reporting activates communities so that activism moves policymakers and wise policy leads to real change for our state.

Searchlight does not follow the conventional business model for newspapers. It does not sell advertisements or subscriptions; instead, Searchlight New Mexico is supported by generous donations from readers like you. By contributing to Searchlight, you can support its mission and ensure that it continues to shine light on the issues that impact New Mexicans most.

Searchlight New Mexico is participating in the annual NewsMatch campaign for the third time this year. Donations up to $5,000 during November and December 2020 will be matched by NewsMatch, and its national funders. In addition, new recurring donations will be matched for the first 12 months!

This is the only annual giving campaign that we currently participate  in, and the donations we receive will help us to continue our work in 2021. Last year we raised just under $100,000 during our end of the year campaign with Newsmatch, making it a huge success.
