Quality journalism costs money!

We are advertising-free, which means we get our support from readers like you, corporate underwriting for specific missions, and foundational support.

If you would like to become a subscriber to the New Maine Times, please click on the oval DONATE link on any page. Subscriptions start at $35, but you may donate any amount up to $200 as a subscriber.

If you would like to donate a larger amount, or if you are a Maine business interested in underwriting a specific series or regular feature, please contact Gina Hamilton at or call (207) 751-8565.

We consider our relationship with you a partnership, and we look forward to your support.

As a special premium, we have copies of Peter Cox's memoir, "Journalism Matters" to send to any donor who subscribes at the $50 level or above.  The books are courtesy of Tillbury House, and we are very pleased to be able to offer them to our readers!
