A $20,000 grant from NewsMatch doubles your donation.

As we near the end of this most challenging year, we are here to request your support once again. By December 31, we must raise $30,000.

The first $20,000 in donations will be matched by NewsMatch. The total $50,000 will mean we can move on from the pandemic with renewed capacity to cover Philadelphia in its fullest light. 

In 2020, Hidden City’s writers and editors responded to the moment with an in-depth and sustained investigation of Black Philadelphia—from the challenges to Black architects and tour guides to the history of Black hospitals, cemeteries, and monuments. We covered frontline workers and Black female political leaders, past and present

Your tax-deductible donation today means this work can expand in 2021. 

Your support keeps our content free of charge, uncluttered by ads, and fully independent.

We're counting on you to step up and support the Hidden City Dailywhether you love our articles about Philly history and city life or appreciate our role as a historic preservation watchdog. 

Your tax-deductible donation means we can publish our critically important annual Lost Buildings survey

To show our appreciation we are offering an exclusive selection of perks, including our new SEPTA token earrings and keychains.

There is so much yet to be discovered! We pledge to give you more architecture, more history, more photography, more preservation news, more trips inside places you’ve never been before in the coming year. 

But we can only do it with the help of readers like you. 

Give now, multiply your impact and help us do more in 2021!

In gratitude,
