The Echo is a locally owned business that relies primarily on advertising to fund our news service, the free distribution of 24,500 papers each week, and our paywall-free website. However, your help to keep this independent voice alive and thriving in the Northern Rivers community is always appreciated.
If you are not a business looking to reach the Echo’s readership, the best way to contribute is via PressPatron. PressPatron allows supporters to make contributions to their favourite journalism websites in a few simple steps. You can support The Echo by clicking the button below. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
On behalf of all our 40-odd local workers, we thank not only our readers, but also our advertisers – it’s you that keep us going. It is thanks to the businesses who support us through advertising that The Echo exists, so we encourage our readers to support them.
