We’re all in this together!

This is a full-time endeavor. We are completely powered by the support of local readers and businesses like you. 

Manchester Ink Link is an independent news site established in June of 2014 by longtime New Hampshire journalist Carol Robidoux to fill a need for local news and information that brings our community together.

It’s grown to include millions of unique readers annually since its inception.

We are here because you deserve reliable information and a trusted news source. But we can’t do it without your financial support! 

News Activism!


We want to activate the community by bringing you the kind of news and information that helps all of us live our best lives!

We invite our loyal readers to join the growing list of sustaining supporters in one of the following ways.

  1. Tip a Reporter. Your contribution in any amount through PayPal.Me/inklink. Your contribution will go right back into our reporting budget to make sure local news and information continue to flow. (Read more about our news team here).
  2. Make a tax-deductible contribution. Our Inkubator program is going to bring more journalists into the world. First, we have to nurture it. Your support will help us grow the future of journalism by empowering young people and community members to learn more about the profession and stretch their wings as writers and content creators. This non-profit arm of the Ink Link is made possible by our fiscal agent, the Local Media Foundation. Learn more/contribute here.
  3. Become an Inklink VIP. Ready to walk the walk with us? Our VIP [Virtual Inklink Patron] program is fun and cool and keeps you engaged. There are three monthly or annual* membership options that give you access to exclusive discounts at local businesses, and admission into our Facebook VIP Lounge where we will host special events and VIP programming throughout the year. Plus, everyone gets a FREE Ink Link T-shirt.

Why should you support Manchester Ink Link?

You mean, why should a news consumer consider supporting their go-to news sources?

It’s pretty straightforward: You wouldn’t expect a plumber to unclog your sink for free. You are happy to pay your manicurist or hairstylist for work well done. You subscribe to cable and premium channels because you like what they dish out, providers including Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, and HBO Max.

By that logic, what is the value of having someone provide you with reliable news and information every single day?

That’s something you will have to answer for yourself.

What do you get in return?

Access to our daily eNews: It’s quick, easy and free to sign up. Just click here, and you will receive our daily eNews, delivered right to your email box every morning at 6 a.m. with a news round-up from the previous 24 hours. It’s free and available to everyone, whether you support our work or just stumbled in.

Responsive journalism: If you don’t find what you’re looking for on the site, let Carol Robidoux know what you’d like to see more of, and she’ll deliver. It’s that simple.

Solutions journalism (and more of it!): We’d like to move away from the “If it bleeds, it leads,” mentality that is the mainstay of mainstream media.  This story on Saving Valley Cemetery is just one example of the kind of thoughtful stories we want to bring you more of, with your continued support. We’re also a founding member of Granite State News Collaborative, a statewide network of news media working together so that NH’s citizenry is well informed.


Thank you for reading!

Carol Robidoux,
