Funding and Support

Freedom of the press depends on you instead of advertisers!

Donations and Sponsors

The Sedona Observer is a nonprofit publishing organization that does not receive funding from advertisers or corporations to ensure the integrity of its editorial content. So we’re operating out-of-pocket – and depending on you for support.

This Web site was paid for by an 86-year-old woman, who is on a fixed income and battling cancer as well as a “corrupt health-care" system, because she believes we represent everything that is so desperately needed in today’s media.

As a free and independent press, The Sedona Observer relies on public contributions, donations and ethical sponsorships to keep the public informed with the in-depth news and analysis of the issues that remain largely censored or neglected by today’s corporate media monopolies.

Your tax-deductible donation will enable us to provide you with better coverage of today’s issues by helping to pay a living wage to our professional contributors eager to use their creative talent in defense of your First Amendment rights.

To endorse The Sedona Observer, please see the adjacent column for directions.

Thank you for helping us protect our First Amendment freedoms!



No donation is too small!

If 500 people each gave $1, that would help pay another contributor to provide you with riveting content for our next issue.
