The Internal Revenue Service recently designated Central Current, Inc. status as a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

This enables supporters of Central Current to make tax-deductible donations in support of the organization’s mission. The designation was approved in time for those who were looking to deduct their donation in 2021.

Central Current’s Board of Directors has set a $1 million fundraising goal to support Central Current’s newsroom and online news publication in 2022 and beyond. The funds raised will help pay for journalist salaries, general operations, audience engagement, and the development of Central Current’s news website. Central Current has established its newsroom at the headquarters of WCNY, Central New York’s public media broadcaster.

Central Current is happy to receive donations by check, credit card, through the donation of stock, or by using online payment below. If you are interested in supporting Central Current, or have any questions about giving, please contact us at or 315-314-7006.


Your contribution is appreciated.
