Help us champion local voices with a donation to Manhattan Neighborhood Network.

Donate to MNN
Every year, Manhattan Neighborhood Network provides low-cost media education and FREE equipment and facilities to hundreds of Manhattan residents and organizations. Our mission is to provide an uncensored and equitable forum where Manhattan residents can learn how to make media and then have their media aired on local cable TV and other platforms. Every class that we offer, every studio that we make available and every program we cablecast supports our mission to showcase and support local voices.
 

In 2019, Manhattan Neighborhood Network aired more than 10,000 hours of originally produced content in more than 40 languages. We also enrolled more than 1,000 community members in our multi-lingual media education classes and recorded the highest facility and equipment usage in our 27-year history!

While we are supported by Spectrum, RCN Cable, and Verizon FiOS, we need your help to further the MNN mission. Your fully tax-deductible gift to Manhattan Neighborhood Network is an investment in strengthening media localism and will help us ensure that we can present perspectives as diverse and dynamic as Manhattan itself.
