Help Keep the Lights On!
The Minot Voice is a for-profit experiment. Our goal is to drive revenue by providing access to our audience and advertising for other Minot businesses, but we are not financially sustainable yet. If you're a regular citizen who appreciates the content and benefit we provide, you can help ensure our experiment is a success. There's no gesture greater than helping carry the burden.
