Billy Penn’s Inside Scoop program was created for members who want to deepen their commitment to local journalism. 

Inside Scoop members are aligned with our mission to make Philly better by informing residents through local reporting and engaging events, without barriers to access.

Featuring designs by local artist Dre Reed, each level of giving is represented by an iconic Philly food for use on BP swag like totes, beanies, t-shirts and more. Show off your favorite flavor, and join a community that values rigorous Philly-centric reporting from fun and useful angles.
