Not-for-profit MinnPost news site raises $13,190 in micro-donations

MinnPost, a non-profit journalism organisations that publishes, has raised $13,190 after calling on users and supporters to make micro-donations.

While a significant chunk was donated by the Harnisch Foundation, MinnPost users gave $6,595, with more opting to pay $25 than $10 from the two suggested amounts.

This isn’t a long-term business model (and the MinnPost isn’t setting it up as such), but is this a sign that readers will pay for hyperlocal news?
