I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

Chris Olson

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Joyce & Oscar Amaro, Alhambra Preservation Group

We support Alhambra Source because this online news source is vitally important in engaging, informing and educating the residents of Alhambra.

Jose Aguayo

I support the Alhambra Source because journalism will always be part of that fourth branch of our democracy. The Alhambra Source provides me with news that helps me make informed decisions about issues that matter to me and my community. Thank you for the work you do.

Michael Lawrence, Alhambra Arts Commissioner

Keep bringing on the stories. The Source has given us so much and I am happy to donate to such an important part of our community.

I support Alhambra Source for their detailed information about important Alhambra issues and compelling human-interest stories.

Alhambra Source Is Looking for Donors: Join the 30*30*30* Campaign

The Alhambra Source 30*30*30* Campaign goes from September 1st - September 30th. Help us reach our goal and be part of the solution.


Alhambra , CA United States

The Alhambra Source, your best option for fact-based reporting in Alhambra and much of  the Western San Gabriel Valley, is holding its first ever September Donor Drive with the goal of bringing at least 30% of our readers into the fold as paying supporters at a minimum level of $30.

The 30*30*30* Campaign begins on Sunday, September 1st and continues until the end of the month.

Donating supporters help us in many ways. The funding that readers like you contribute help give us the necessary capital to keep the lights on and the wi-fi humming for our lean staff so we can report, write and photograph the stories you want to read and see. It also conveys to interested funders our importance to you and the community we have served now for nearly a decade.

During that time we’ve helped energize the local political process becoming a catalyst for progress in the city that has been called the Gateway to the San Gabriel Valley.

In the past few months that coverage has included reports on pedestrian safety, the debate over the I-710 stub, housing and development issues, and in-depth reporting on the city’s new general plan.

We hope you’ve noticed our excellent video reporting from correspondent Leah Chang. Her reports, which have drawn a wide following on our site and in social media, have included the moving reaction to the tragic shooting and subsequent death of L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Solano and his funeral.

Her excellent video reports on pedestrian safety and the face of affordable housing in Alhambra also drew wide interest. They are some of the best ways we keep you up to date on the all-things Alhambra.

But her work, along with the excellent reporting from our Senior Writer Phoenix Tso and new reporting from our Community Outreach Manager Dominic Tovar need your financial support to continue.  As a 501 © 3, we don’t take ads and we don’t have a paywall so we rely on your tax-deductible support to maintain our operations.

Won’t you join us as we continue to work to keep you informed on issues affecting your quality of life in the changing West San Gabriel Valley?

In many cases our journalism and community outreach efforts—including our recent Financial Literacy Workshop for high school seniors—brings unexpected light to subjects of concern to area residents.

We love Alhambra! and we strive to be part of the solution to create a better future for all its residents and for the greater San Gabriel Valley.

Please take a minute and donate starting Sunday.

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
