The Investigative Reporting Workshop has had an amazing year! Just look at our hard-hitting reports on investigativereportingworkshop.org and you’ll see why. We accomplished so much because of your generosity.
The new year promises to be equally extraordinary. But we can’t do it without you. Investigative journalism is expensive and takes time — but it’s vital for a strong democracy and an empowered citizenry.
That’s why we hope you’ll continue to support our work with a donation this holiday season. All of the funding support for our investigations comes from foundation partners and individual supporters like you.
