Engaging Journeys, Engaged Journalism

Donors and Founders

Up the Road gratefully accepts financial contributions from all those who support its independent public-interest journalism. Up the Road welcomes suggestions and story ideas from readers, but otherwise supporters play no role in guiding its journalism. Up the Road will always publish the names of individuals or organizations contributing $100 or more.

Up the Road Founders

Up the Road’s Founders are those supporters whose contributions are helping to generate the company’s first $50,000 in financial support. Founders listed below have contributed $100 or more to help this project get a little farther up the road. You could say these fine folks are our first and original roadies.
