Everything we make at The Evergrey we make because of you — our amazing, active, curious Seattle community.
So we’re pretty pumped that thanks to the investments you’ve made in our SeedInvest fundraising campaign — some as small as $500! — we’ve beat our minimum goal of $50,000 — and we’re on our way to meet our stretch goal of $250,000.
Why are you investing in The Evergrey and our parent company, WhereBy.Us? We asked a few of you, and this is what you said:
“Ever since I moved to Seattle back in March, The Evergrey is the one email newsletter I read word for word every morning because it’s full of useful information for a new transplant like me (and likely for a lot of long-time residents of the city as well). You do a great job of mixing in a variety of topics to keep me attuned to what’s happening locally. That’s why I decided to invest and support what you’re doing. I think you’re building a scalable content + advertising model that can thrive.”
— Karim Naraghi
“As a reader, I think of The Evergrey like a long-time friend who has a pulse on the city. As an investor, I see WhereBy.Us as a media brand providing news to your inbox in a hyperlocal way, with a smart strategy to expand and continue offering quality content tailored to readers’ cities.”
— Melissa Cafiero
“I want to support locally-produced news. But why The Evergrey specifically? Because I know you are passionate about your work. What I see in your writing is a sense of wonder and curiosity about the world. Every time a person is featured in The Evergrey, I feel like I would want to have a conversation with that person, to take that bit of knowledge you’ve provided and learn more.”
— Steve Kaiser
