Your gift today will propel journalists in 2022
Journalists faced huge obstacles over the last year. The ongoing global pandemic. Violence and conflict challenging the core of our democracy. 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 to deliver news and information to help them make decisions and engage civically. 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.
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 supporting journalists and their important work.
