Advertise in Real Change

A Real Difference
Real Change is a highly valued progressive community newspaper that won 16 first place regional journalism awards in 2014. Real Change readers are educated, socially-concerned, and loyal. Our publication is sold by Seattle’s homeless, and helps them earn the money they need to get ahead. Each month, more than 300 different vendors are out selling our paper throughout the Seattle area. Real Change is a hand up, not a handout.


Real Numbers
Over the past 20 years, Real Change has grown from a monthly to an award-winning weekly publication with a paid circulation of approximately 12,000 copies per issue. Our vendors pay 60 cents a copy for their papers, which are then sold on the street for a two-dollar donation. Real Change doesn’t sit around gathering dust on store floors. Each issue sold is purchased by an interested community member.


Real Value
When you spend your ad dollars with Real Change, you not only help an important project grow, you get a great deal. If you compare our ad rates to similar publications, you will find our rates beat the competition, and we have better circulation.


Our marketing surveys show an extraordinarily diverse readership from all over the Seattle area, reaching as far away as Olympia, Silverdale, and Redmond. Our typical reader is a socially concerned, college-educated person with some financial affluence.


Advertising with Real Change is a way to reach out to the community and give something back at the same time. Please consider an investment in Real Change. We’re a good deal in a good cause.
