Support local journalism in Montgomery County

Our reporters work tirelessly to report on politics, development, crime, education, real estate and dining, so you can be informed about — and get the most out of — your community. This quality, local reporting is free for you to read and share, but it’s expensive to produce. Bethesda Beat is partly funded by digital advertising, but that doesn’t nearly cover the cost of operating our newsroom.

We are big fans of recurring memberships – contributions made on a monthly basis. Sustaining memberships help us ensure a predictable revenue stream, and save you from having to budget a one-time contribution for the end of the year. To become a sustaining member, simply select the monthly option below.
