Give the gift of Chicago Public Square

Sure, you know Chicago Public Square—the Chicago Reader’s Best Blog of 2019—is essential reading.

But if your friends don’t know that, give ’em the gift of Square—a subscription plus the benefits that go with each of the support levels listed below.

Your gift is the ideal way to introduce a friend to Square. It underwrites Square’s brand of smart, omnivorous coverage that doesn’t waste your time—and you both get the perks listed.

Square gifts don’t recur; your recipient will get an invitation to renew financial support at the end of a year. But the subscription to Square will continue free, regardless—because that’s the way we roll.
If your cash is spoken for, you can instead send a friend a (free) invitation to subscribe here.
And if you don’t have any friends, you can just give yourself a gift—or make an ongoing pledge here.
