About Voice of the Village
Voice of the Village is a monthly newspaper serving the community of Sunland-Tujunga/Shadow Hills, California.
Our mission is to communicate a positive image of the Sunland-Tujunga-Shadow Hills community in a way that benefits the community as a whole with a particular concern for our young people; to improve the quality of life in our community; and to do this in a manner that shows respect for all in the community.
We are published by The Sunland-Tujunga-Shadow Hills Community Fund, a non-profit charitable organization which funds such projects as the Verdugo Hills High School Matching Grant Fund, the publication of the Verdugo Hills High School Newspaper La Yuca, and other worthy causes. We are advertising-supported. All profits from advertising sales go to the Sunland-Tujunga-Shadow Hills Community fund and are used for the benefit of the community as a whole.
See our Articles of Incorporation as a 501(c)(3) organization.
Also see the minutes from our very first board meeting.
Advertising with Voice of the Village supports community projects in addition to the newspaper and might be tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. We offer a variety of advertising options to suit your budget and preferences. You may submit an advertisement of your own design, or we can assist you with ad creation. Please contact us to discuss your advertising needs.
