Journalism Crowdfunding Site To Shutter

Beaconreader.com, a journalism crowdfunding portal, is shutting down, following in the footsteps of several other journalism sites. No reason was given.

Started in 2013, “it’s backed several high-profile journalism projects, including The Huffington Post’s $44,626 Ferguson Fellowship, The Texas Tribune’s $10,085 “Unholstered” project examining police shootings and The Nation’s $56,910 immigration reporting initiative.”

Byline, which began in 2015, continues online.

Beacon’s servers will go dark on Oct. 31,2016, so if there are articles you wish to download, do it now.
