Additional personnel, software, products and equipment needed for our future
Village News Inc, a company that has shown great resiliancy over 25 years, is looking for community members who are able to invest alongside us in our expansion.
Village News, it's sister papers Valley News, Anza Valley Outlook, as well as our annual magazines and websites, have been able to reach millions of people over the years and consistently generate over a million dollars annually.
The company has a loyal employee base that has also shown great resiliancy, despite recession, fires, floods, a terrorist attack through ransomware, personal tragedy and a global pandemic.
Village News, Inc started with a group of 25 local couples who each invested about $2,000. We have all aged and many of our original investors have passed, but we have never been "bought" or taken investment from an outside company, despite social media rumors.
With that seed money, we built a business and a brand that has served every part of this community. Not just the residents and readers, but all the nonprofits, all the government agencies, civic groups, sheriff and fire, students in sports, schools, businesses, and churches. It has supported things like the growth of the art & cultural community and local parks and preserves.
But our focus has always been award-winning local news.
People want news more than ever, but the distribution of it continues to evolve. It's our challenge to continue to transform our business to meet the challenge of new generations.
We are looking for residents who have the means and the desire to come alongside us with no personal or political agenda other than the belief that independent community news is as crucial as the founding fathers believed it was to our Republic when they penned the First Amendment.
We are looking for people who are proud that we have our own award-winning community paper and want to support our growth.
We are launching new digital and print products and websites. We need new software, equipment and personnel.
If you are a person who has the financial means to support or invest in us, our vision of the future, and the community, please call me at 760-723-7319 or email jreeder@reedermedia.
As always, thank you for your support.
