Searchlight’s mission to deliver high-impact investigative reporting to inspire New Mexicans to demand action on systemic problems that plague our state.

Starting now—through Dec. 31—the New Mexico Local News Fund and NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12 times or double your one-time gift (up to $1,000). Your gift will be super-charged — and it will support high-quality, independent news coverage across the state.

We believe that great reporting can motivate all New Mexicans to confront racial and economic inequities, government corruption, negligence, and abuses of power.

We also believe that great reporting should be accessible by all, and that is why we do not use paywalls or subscriptions to wall off our work. As a result, we rely on reader donations for support.

Your support will help us continue to produce the kind of public-service journalism you won’t find anywhere else. If you value the critical work we do, will you give today?

Yes, I'm in!
