Why donate to IRE?
IRE is a vital support system for the largest body of investigative reporters in the world. Our 4,500 members are responsible for holding government and business accountable in cites large and small across the U.S. and throughout the world. These journalists use IRE's tools and training to do their crucial work.
The work IRE does promotes transparency, saves tax money and helps safeguard the most vulnerable members of our society. The world is quite literally a better place because of IRE, its members, and the training we offer. We need your support to continue this worthwhile work.
IRE is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education and professional organization working to foster excellence in journalism. Donate to IRE and help us provide state-of-the-art training, critical reporting resources, mentoring and networking for investigative journalists. IRE depends on contributions to maintain and improve its services – and have long-term financial stability. In order to further stabilize IRE, we must double our endowment in the next five years. The need for your support is both compelling and immediate.
Thank you for helping IRE continue to foster excellence in investigative journalism, a mission essential to a free and democratic society.
