Help us reach our year-end fundraising goal

Journalists faced huge obstacles over the last year. An ongoing global pandemic. A chaotic election. A Capitol insurrection. And a growing distrust of information that impacts us all.

Yet journalism - and the journalists who practice it - endures. Communities need journalists now more than ever. We hope you’ll join us in ensuring a free press and its place in a healthy democracy continue to endure.

Your tax-deductible donation allows the National Press Club Journalism Institute to provide craft, career, and community support to thousands of journalists in the United States and around the globe. Together, we can power journalism in the public interest.

We have two bonuses for those choosing to give now:

  • Supporters who give $150 or more will receive a 5”x7” signed print commemorating the importance of press freedom to democracy, illustrated by Liza Donnelly of The New Yorker. The artist’s live digital reporting and cartoons also have been featured on CBS News, NBC, and CNN; and in Forbes, Fusion, Medium, Narrative, Politico, The Daily Beast, Open Salon, The Huffington Post, and Women’s eNews, among others. Give today to get your copy in time for the holidays.
  • Supporters who commit to a recurring gift (monthly, quarterly, or annually) will double their impact! Thanks to a generous gift, we are able to match recurring gifts up to $1,000 through the end of the year.

As journalists’ needs continue to evolve, so do the Institute’s efforts to support them:

  • Producing timely, relevant educational programming through an all-digital format. This year, the Institute has focused its programming on writing and editing, diversity and inclusion, press freedom, and career growth. The majority of our programs are at no cost to participants.
  • Working to remove barriers to press freedom and providing direct support for journalists who are unjustly targeted for their work through our dozens of statements of support and amicus briefs, as well as a letter-writing campaign to members of Congress.
  • Publishing a daily, industry-focused newsletter that provides a curated list of news-related headlines, best practices, leadership advice and resources. It reaches more than 2,900 readers in all 50 states, in newsrooms, agencies, and classrooms large and small.
  • Facilitating dynamic community groups that allow for the free exchange of skills and ideas. Members of the writing group consistently say the sense of community they’ve gained – along with writing prompts that challenge them to grow their skills – is what brings them back.

You are an important part of our community - thank you for making us a part of your life.
