As we’ve pointed out before, since the Chronicle began, costs have been borne primarily by advertisers. This year, more readers have pitched in voluntarily. That support has helped us survive the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. (Thank you!)

We hope to build that support further, so we’re returning to the olden days, when it was routine for readers to provide some of the financial support for the news they depend upon. We’re launching a paywall for online content on Jan. 1.
