Frequently Asked Questions

What does a school receive through this program?

Any student who benefits from your generosity will receive a full year of access to our site, baltimoresun.com, our mobile apps for iOS and Android devices and our daily eNewspaper which is a digital edition of that day’s newspaper.

How do you determine how many students receive digital subscriptions with my contribution?

We reduced our weekly price by over 90% so that $13 funds one digital subscription for a whole year.

Can I direct my sponsorship to a specific school or person?

Not at this time. Our program funds Baltimore Sun subscriptions around the U.S., prioritizing students and schools in Maryland and those who are already on our waiting list.

Is my sponsorship tax-deductible?

No. Your sponsorship payment is not tax-deductible and non-refundable. Since we are a for-profit business, your contribution will not be eligible for a charitable tax deduction.
