Guardian hits one million mark

The Guardian has announced that it has now received financial support from more than one million people in the last three years.

The Guardian will be running a series of pieces across its platforms this week - including a piece on the importance of supporters by Guardian News & Media editor-in-chief Katharine Viner - to thank readers and to encourage others to support its independent journalism, say the publishers.

According to The Guardian, of the million financial contributions received in the last three years:

* 570,000 are current monthly supporters now, of which:

o 340,000 give recurring monthly contributions as members or supporters

o 230,000 subscribe to the Guardian’s print and digital products

* The Guardian has received 600,000 one-off financial contributions since 2016, when this option was first offered.
