What Is Hy-Lo News’ Goal?
Hy-Lo News needs your help to improve the technology we use to deliver to our community vital news they want and need. With your valued support, we’ll be able to build a new top-notch website that will improve our audience experience and we’ll be able to manage web maintenance for a year. The new website will not only have a better user experience but will allow us to operate our unique membership program for Hy-Lo News subscribers. What set’s our membership program apart from others is our commitment to promoting local businesses in South Florida, especially Black and Brown-led businesses and organizations. Through our website, members will be able to access exclusive content and be given monthly perks and discounts to shop, dine and explore locally. We have already made partnerships with local businesses to kick off the membership, the missing link is our ability to build a website that can effectively house our vision. This is where your donation will help us accomplish our mission.
A donation to Hy-Lo News is an investment in equitable journalism and in a company that is poised to disrupt the local news industry. Our coverage of issues that matter most to our community is our top priority and with your support we’ll be able to do that at a high level. We thank you in advance for your commitment to seeing Hy-Lo News’ vision come to life. We’re truly in this together!
— Janey Tate, Hy-Lo News Founder & CEO
