Support Local Journalism

We created the Matthews Beacon because our town deserves a local news source reflective of that small town feeling that makes Matthews, NC special.

To sustain our business, we offer an annual membership (complete with swag) to give a little back as a thank you for your support. Become a member to gain early access to content, discounts at area businesses, and other perks!
