Support Us

We provide 817 BIZ free to readers, and advertising allows us do this — for the most part.

We’re offering our most passionate and loyal readers the opportunity to support our newsletter directly. Your dollars will go toward funding our operations (salaries, freelancers, marketing) and keeping 817 BIZ free. We’re not a non-profit, but like your business, we require funding to continue operations on a regular frequency. Please consider contributing to help our small team by dropping some love in our tip jar.

Questions? Just email


Why should I contribute to your tip jar?

You should become a supporter because you love what we do and want to support our work. Donating to our tip jar will ensure that we can keep publishing the newsletter by providing funding for staff/freelancers as well as expenses related to marketing, distribution and software.

Is it easy to change or cancel my contribution?

Yes, it’s easy. Just email us at, to let us know you would like us to turn off auto-renewal.

Does my membership expire?

Tip jar donations last for one year and renew automatically.
If you selected the one-time option, your donation will not auto-renew.
