How You Can Help

Crestone Eagle Community Media (CECM) is dedicated to maintaining a reliable media presence in our town and region. Sadly, many small towns that supported newspapers for many generations are now media deserts. If a newspaper is understood as a community-in-print, what happens to a small town when it disappears? Where do we turn for reliable local news and for the kind of commentary that helps us understand local and regional issues? How do we stay informed on issues related to local businesses and government? 

We believe that a strong media presence is essential to sustaining the relationships that keep our community alive and well. In that spirit, we are reaching out to those who care about rural journalism and who understand the important role it plays in a small town like Crestone. Crestone Eagle Community Media (CECM) is currently raising funds in order to purchase and sustain The Crestone Eagle. If you would like to make a donation to help us do so, you can do so here or by sending a check payable to Crestone Eagle Community Media, and mailing to CECM, P.O. Box 101, Crestone, CO 81131. Thanks for your support!

Note: Donations are not tax-deductible at this time. We are in the process of working with the IRS on a filing issue, and hope to have our nonprofit status resolved by year-end 2021, or early 2022.

With appreciation, 

Crestone Eagle Community Media Board of Directors:

Peter Anderson, Heather Draper, Gussie Fauntleroy, Marge Hoglin, Frank Judson, and Curtis Ramsay
