Twelve Months of Investigations, Impact and Outrage

One year ago, ICIJ launched the biggest investigation in journalism history: the Panama Papers. ICIJ and more than 100 media partners published hundreds of stories revealing the offshore financial secrets of many of the world’s richest and most powerful people. The investigation sparked protests, resignations, arrests and fierce debate around the world. And that was just the beginning.

Since then we’ve worked with more than 500 journalists to continue the investigation and help bring transparency to a secretive world. ICIJ’s staff have flown tens of thousands of miles to train reporters, to address parliamentary inquiries and to continue exposing the shadowy industry of offshore finance.

To cap it all off, in early 2017 ICIJ took the momentous step to spin off from the Center for Public Integrity and become a fully-independent organization with the ambitious goal of producing the world’s best cross-border journalism.

Needless to say, it has been a huge year for ICIJ!

And now we’re asking for your help to keep the momentum going. At a time when autocrats, demagogues, criminals and other shady characters are seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of society, it is more important than ever that journalists can remain the world’s eyes and ears, and root out corruption and wrongdoing.

Please, pledge your support for ICIJ and help us in our mission to expose wrongdoing and to hold the world’s most powerful people to account.
