Membership Benefits


The League of Sustained Outrage

You keep our lights on. Literally. Your gift of any amount fuels critical investigative reporting and accountability journalism about our Mountain State.

In appreciation, you’ll get a free ticket to all of our members-only events (virtual for now, but eventually in-person around West Virginia).


Golden Horseshoe Club

$15/month or over $180 per year

West Virginia has a rich history of fearless journalism, of which you’re well-aware. Your gift of $15 a month or more is the foundation we’re building this organization on, and we’re so grateful for your continued support.

To thank you, you’ll get into our members-only events, plus we’ll send you one of our stylish Mountain State Spotlight stickers to adorn your car, laptop, etc.


Montani Semper Liberi Society

$25/month or over $300 per year

You know that one reason mountaineers are always free is because of scrappy, independent news outlets, and you’re doing your part to make sure that continues. Your generous support of $25 a month or more enables us to keep producing unflinching local journalism without fear or favor.

To show our thanks, you’ll get all the perks listed above plus access to quarterly members-only coffees, where MSS staff will gather (virtually) to talk with you about our reporting.
