The short answer is, you do.

Dexter Auction brings news and information to central Virginia, centering its work on building a healthy local news ecosystem that empowers more of us. Our funders, from large foundation supporter to small monthly gifts and everything in between, collectively bring you reporting and programming that helps keep the diverse communities of this region informed. Our donors understand how important it is to have an independent press, and support our editorial independence policy.

Below is a list of individual donors and grantmakers who supported Dexter Auction in 2021-2022. Without these generous supporters, Dexter Auction would not provide in-depth journalism that serves our neighbors by connecting them to each other and to the issues that affect them most.

Dexter Auction is a 501(c)(3) public charity organization. Donors and sponsors can deduct contributions they make to the fullest extent allowable by law.
