For the next two weeks we’re asking our friends, readers (that’s you), and subscribers to make a financial contribution to support our work.

We provide news and information that matters, and we also depend on our readers to make it possible.

Will you help? Please make a secure online gift.

Your gift supports the Sightline work you appreciate—like this blog and Sightline Daily news, and the Cascadia Scorecard—a huge and open source of research, maps, and graphics on pressing Northwest issues. I won’t even mention our leading role in shaping fair, effective climate policy and Sightline’s coverage of green collar jobs, urban affordability, and the dwindling Sage-Grouse population.

Sightline readers like you make this possible.

You gift keeps right on giving. It fuels the positive change our region needs to thrive. Here are some accomplishments Sightline donors have helped set in motion:

    • Help defeat I-985—Tim Eyman’s aggressive 2008 transportation measure. Sightline fellow Doug MacDonald was a tireless and effective spokesman for the No campaign.
    • Sightline researchers have served as expert consultants to the Western Climate Initiative (WCI), helping to ensure that the resulting policy was effective, efficient, and fair.
    • Interest in green-collar jobs has exploded: the Sightline-coined term is suddenly on the lips of governors, members of Congress, and the President. Plus, Washington passed a law that will kick-start workforce training for thousands of green-collar workers.
    • And in July 2008, British Columbia implemented the most comprehensive carbon tax shift yet seen anywhere in the world, taking a page from Sightline’s book.

    Please help us achieve even more wins! It only takes a few minutes to give through our online giving form, http://www.sightline.org/giving. If you’d rather mail in your gift, please send us this form.

    Thanks so much!
