How donations will support ICIJ in 2018

The support of generous donors will help make ICIJ stronger, and more powerful in 2018.

The support of donors will help make ICIJ stronger, and more powerful in 2018.

On Giving Tuesday, November 28 last year, ICIJ announced a goal to raise at least $100,000 before the end of 2017.

While we weren’t sure what response we’d get, we knew there was a significant amount of support and attention because of the release of our latest cross-border investigation the Paradise Papers. We wanted to use that moment to highlight the importance of our journalism and how donations that make that work possible.

We also were grateful to be part of the News Match 2017 campaign. From October 1 to December 31, the funders behind News Match – Democracy Fund, Knight Foundation, and MacArthur Foundation – committed to matching donations we received, dollar-for-dollar, up to$28,000.

Thanks to your support, we raised more than $190,000 from individual donors since the release of the Paradise Papers in November. That’s in addition to the $28,000 we expect to receive from the News Match campaign.

That’s an incredible testament to the generosity of our global community of readers, followers, and supporters who share our values and believe in our mission.

To all of you, we are so grateful for the support.

But now, we get back to work.

Here’s what your donations mean for us in 2018: better, stronger, more powerful investigative reporting that changes the world.

Our reporters and editors are pitching ideas, researching leads, and working together right now on our next global investigation.

Our staff are planning trips to visit our members and partners in all corners of the globe – so we can learn from them and build better relationships with reporters.

Our data team is taking stock of our technology and tools, figuring out how we can innovate and improve for future projects. We’re working on ways we can more effectively and efficiently train journalists on security protocols, data analysis, and reporting and research techniques. And, of course, we’re working on releasing more information to our Offshore Leaks Database.

All of this makes for a stronger ICIJ in 2018. And when ICIJ is strong, so is our investigative reporting.

We now know what can happen when a team of global reporters collaborate together on massive investigative stories. We can bring down governments, spark investigations, force public resignations. Together, we generate an incredible amount of impact.

And it’s all thanks to you.
