The Electric is a small LLC that is officially recognized by the Montana Secretary of State.

We’re registered as The Electric Media Group LLC.

For now, we’re going the small business route as things get up and running and we have plans to create a nonprofit that will support independent journalism across Montana.

If you’re interested in supporting The Electric as an independent news source in Great Falls, with a focus on local government, economic development and military issues, you can send a check to The Electric Media Group at P.O. Box 2643, Great Falls, MT 59403 or you can give it to Jenn directly when you see her out and about covering government meetings and other events.

For simplicity’s sake, and the lack of fees, we prefer checks by mail, but we get that online donations are quick and easy, so we’ve created an option for that.

Support The Electric

We are committed to informing the community with a website that's free of paywalls and uncluttered by flashing ads. But we appreciate any financial support to cover the cost of doing journalism and web hosting fees, equipment, etc.


Want to advertise? We’ve got a limited number of advertising options available, including some on and some in our email subscriptions. Get in touch at for those details.

We’re starting small in the hopes of proving that real local journalism still has value and if you believe that too, consider a financial contribution. Eventually, we’re hoping to hire a few other reporters to help cover more ground, but we’re going to wait until we can pay people for their work. Your contributions will help cover expenses and help Jenn spend more time reporting and less time working part time jobs to make this site work.

Please keep in mind that contributions, while appreciated, will not influence editorial content.

Got questions? Email or call 406.868.6076, but keep in mind that Jenn might be in a government meeting, interview, or working her part-time jobs, so please leave a message otherwise she’ll assume you’re a telemarketer.
