Meet the Funders: Double your impact with NewsMatch 2018

Join ICIJ Insiders, our global community of supporters, today, and you can make your impact go twice as far.

As a nonprofit organization, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists relies on donations to support our investigative journalism. This series provides a regular update on who our major donors are and why they choose to support us. If you have questions or would like to learn more about donating to ICIJ, please contact us.

Now is the time to support independent, investigative journalism like ours. Join ICIJ Insiders, our global community of supporters, and you can make your impact go twice as far.

During NewsMatch, the largest grassroots campaign for nonprofit news that runs from now until December 31, if you start a monthly donation (that also helps us be sustainable), it will be matched at its annual value.

So, your new $15/month donation will be automatically matched with a $180 donation.

Your contribution will help us fund investigations like the Paradise Papers, develop collaboration tools like Datashare and ensure we continue to hold the powerful to account.

For these reasons, we ’re honored to participate in NewsMatch to raise important funds for nonprofit news outlets.

Like last year, NewsMatch will match, dollar-for-dollar, all individual donations up to $1,000 between November 1 and December 31. In total, we have an opportunity to raise $25,000 in matching funds to boost our year-end fundraising efforts.

And if you join as a monthly donor, even for as little as $3/month, you will be part of our ICIJ Insiders community. ICIJ Insiders receive benefits, like a quarterly newsletter and sneak peeks of our behind-the-scenes stories. (More information on the Insiders program can be found here).

Our monthly donors are critical to ICIJ’s long-term sustainability. Monthly gifts represent a revenue stream that is reliable and predictable. Those donations keep us going year round, so we can pursue the deep dives and in-depth reporting that can take months of even years, of work.

“I trust you and rely on your work, to understand how and why our democracy is in danger right now,” one ICIJ Insider told us when they joined.

They allow us to maintain the strong team of reporters, editors, researchers, data analysts and developers that are behind unprecedented global investigations, like the Paradise Papers, and regional investigations, like West Africa Leaks.


As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you to pursue fearless, independent journalism. And this work is needed now more than ever. Won’t you join us and stand up for journalism that exposes the truth and holds the powerful to account? There is no better time than during NewsMatch to start a monthly gift or support us with a one-time donation.

NewsMatch is made possible through the support of the Democracy Fund, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation and others.

ICIJ is dedicated to ensuring all reports we publish are accurate. If you believe you have found an inaccuracy let us know.
