  • Dan Rosensweig, president and chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity Greater Charlottesville;
  • Timothy Longo, former Charlottesville chief of police;
  • Wendy Amato, director of curriculum and academics at WorldStrides;
  • Toan Nguyen, co-founder of C’ville Coffee, C’ville Central, and Community Investment Collaborative;
  • James Coan, director of the Virginia Affective Neuroscience Laboratory at U.Va.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
