First Class Stamp Now 41 Cents

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Effective today, you will need more bounce for your outbound ounce. The U.S. Postal Service has raised the cost of a first-class stamp.

First-Class® letters:

$0.41 (first ounce)
$0.17 (each additional ounce)
The upshot? Brand spankin’ new Star Wars stamps and envelopes.
