Support Real, Rigorous Journalism

Quality investigative reporting that strengthens democracy and communities requires significant time and resources — and is increasingly scarce in the for-profit media landscape. As an editorially independent nonprofit newsroom, IRW is committed to filling that void with rigorously reported stories that would otherwise go untold. 

Our ambitious work, and ability to train the next generation of journalists, is powered by donations. Your support enables us to uncover visa backlogs at the State Department; DC police out-earning the mayor through overtime; workers losing the right to breaks in heat waves; and dozens more stories on healthcare, sexual harassment, immigration, race and politics each year.
