El Tímpano

is a non-profit initiative led by civic innovators rooted in Oakland. It is fueled by the hundreds of residents and community leaders who told us they want local reporting that speaks their languages, amplifies their voices, and empowers them with news and information that can help them be engaged in their communities and informed decision makers for their families.

By supporting El Tímpano, you are supporting our vision of equitable information access, of local journalism that serves and reflects the diversity of our communities, and of a Bay Area where every voice is valued.

By supporting El Tímpano, you are investing in a nationwide model for innovative journalism, homegrown right here in Oakland, California.

Every dollar helps us bring this vision to life.

El Tímpano is fiscally sponsored by Independent Arts & Media, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to building community through media and the arts. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
