I WANT YOU: Become A Partner in the Fight to Keep Maywood Informed

If you like what I’m doing and wish to see it grow, consider partnering with me in the fight to keep Maywood informed:

For at least $5/month, or a lump yearly contribution of at least $50, here’s what you’ll get:

  • A monthly report (PDF file) comprising both actual and forecast monthly budgets, strategic plans for VFP and updates on our month-by-month growth. For the monetary equivalent of two Happy Meals, you’ll get to watch this thing mature into what, with your help, I believe will become a jewel not only for Maywood, but for surrounding suburbs. And you’ll experience a much more lasting sense of fullness.

For at least $10/month, or a lump yearly contribution of at least $100, here’s what you’ll get:

  • All of the above, in addition to:
  • Exclusive bonus coverage of any and all things Maywood sent directly to your inbox every month.
  • An automatic advanced subscription for the print edition of The Village Free Press that is currently in the works–delivered right to your doorstep.

For at least $20/month, or a lump yearly contribution of at least $200, here’s what you’ll get:

  • All of the above, in addition to:
  • Do you have an anniversary or a birthday upcoming? Do you want everybody and everybody’s mamas to know it? Don’t quite have that Hallmark way with words that you’d like? Just shoot an email to thevillagefreepress@gmail.com and have us customize and publicize your announcement via Twitter, Facebook and a few SEO tricks (search engine optimization). Remember, though, you have to be a partner, first. And there’s a limit of 2 announcements per month per partner.
  • VIP seating and automatic invitations to a range of VFP events we plan on sponsoring in the future.

Here’s how it works (in three simple steps):

1. Click the DONATE button below and simply follow the directions; or, you can mail a check or money order with the enclosed donation to 613 S. 21st Ave., Maywood, IL, 60153. Make it out to: Michael Romain. (Note: online donations are much more convenient and safer).

Donate Button with Credit Cards
2. Next, fill out the form below (you should do this regardless of whether you donated online or through the mail–this form makes the record-keeping process go much smoother).


3. Once you’ve filled out the partnership form, just wait…pretty soon you’ll receive a pledge packet in your inbox. This packet will include a form detailing the terms and conditions of your partnership and a certificate of our appreciation.

Thanks so much,

Michael Romain

  1. I’ll start contributing in October 2013–It’s September now; I’m financially embarrassed until October 3rd…keep up the great work, there’s a buzz going about this pub!
