As a nonprofit organization, ICIJ relies on charitable foundations and financial support from the public. Cross-border investigative journalism is among the most expensive and riskiest in the world, and we are incredibly grateful to our supporters who make this work possible. The following list (current as of January 12, 2018) includes institutional and major individual donors who provided support in 2017-2018. If you’re interested in making a donation, you can learn more here.
Funding goes to support ICIJ’s general operations, technology and tools, and investigative projects. ICIJ maintains a strict firewall between our editorial and fundraising. All editorial decisions are made independently, and no donor or institution influences ICIJ’s coverage.
To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, ICIJ embraces the Donor Bill of Rights developed by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Giving Institute.
