As The Daily Tar Heel continues to celebrate 125 years of journalism excellence, we look optimistically ahead to our future - a future that will rely on help from our generous alumni and friends.
For Summer 2018, we're launching Start the Presses!, an annual giving campaign to help cover expenses for the upcoming publishing year. As traditional advertising revenues decline, your donations through Start the Presses! will help the DTH invest in three key initiatives as we enter the fall publishing season:
Cameras and digital processing equipment;
Student stipends, which make working at the DTH a viable option for all students, regardless of financial situation;
General operations to keep the DTH fulfilling its mission as we build a new business model that adds student-led creative marketing services and digital publishing to our print advertising revenue.
Whether you’re a DTH alum or a longtime fan of our students’ work, we know you appreciate the role of a free student press. The Daily Tar Heel has been a defining experience for thousands of journalists and has informed the UNC student body for 125 years. Help us invest in the future of journalism by investing in our student journalists of today.

Benefits of Giving:
