Welcome to BRsq’s Annual Fund Raising Campaign!
This is where we ask you to help us continue our mission of bringing you a quality news service and providing local youth with mass media, First Amendment, and educational opportunities.
BRsq is the main program for the educational nonprofit Citizen X. We are local organization with 501 c 3 status. That means that your contribution is tax deductible! Check out the “About” page for our mission statement and reasons for existence.

Where Your Donation Goes
Our annual budget is purposefully kept small, but we survive solely off of grants and public support. Your donation will assist with the items that most local foundations will not cover; paying our two person staff, providing stipends for young reporters, community outreach and educational programs, and daily office maintenance expenses. Nothing goes to waste and all funds are spent to support Canton and Stark County youth.
We can only continue with your help! Whether it is $5 or $500, no donation is too small except no donation at all. While we do our best to keep our annual budget to minimum, we are an educational 501 c 3 nonprofit that survives solely off of grants and public support. Your donation will help us continue to serve the under served students and youth in the Canton community. With your assistance we can bring quality art, education and media to all of Stark County.
