Help us continue to bring quality independent journalism to this special place

Moonshine Ink is independently owned and operated, meaning we are nimble and responsive — beholden to no one but ourselves and our readers. We are dedicated to delivering honest, factual reporting to everyone who holds Tahoe/Truckee dear, from the longtime local, to the weekend warrior and even to readers who fly over big oceans to get home.

Every day, our team works hard to come up with innovative ideas while holding true to the base tenet that our democracy depends on local journalism. It is about people and their stories that need to be told, it’s about holding government accountable, it’s about celebrating our land, and it’s about you. We need your assistance in moving the mission forward.
