The Diamondback is the University of Maryland’s official independent student newspaper. We receive no funding from the State, the University, the SGA or any other entity. Our financial independence allows us to report on important university and College Park issues without fear of censorship or interference. We support the important work and education of our student journalists solely through the advertising we sell and the very generous charitable donations of our readers.
Your donation will help in so many ways, including:
The purchase of modern equipment such as computers, software, photographic & video equipment
Travel expenses for our student reporters to cover Maryland basketball and football games
Development & maintenance of our mobile and web platforms
The Diamondback is an IRS–recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and any charitable donation made may be fully tax–deductible to individuals or corporations.
The Diamondback has been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists as best college newspaper five times including best regional non-daily for 2017.
