Real Change’s success directly depends upon community support of our vendors. This ranges from the relationships you build on the street when you purchase the paper to your financial support, volunteer time, and engagement in our advocacy.
Support Our Vendors
Real Change readers put more than a million dollars annually directly into the pockets of our vendors, but that’s not all. Vendors say the relationships that get forged everyday on the street matter to them even more. Find a vendor near you today.
Become a Financial Supporter
In 2016, nearly 1,800 individual donors contributed more than $600,000 to support publication of our weekly newspaper, community mobilization for advocacy, and provide vendor opportunity. Real Change reader support provides the majority of Real Change’s annual funding. Join our community of financial supporters.
Be a Real Change Volunteer
Many critical roles within Real Change are supported by thousands of annual volunteer hours provided by more than 140 individuals. Volunteer Coordinator Jenn Romo can help match your interests and availability to a wide variety of important volunteer opportunities. Learn more.
