Every journalist faces challenges when digging into an investigative project. For independent journalists, those roadblocks can be even greater, because they typically don’t have the support of a news organization behind them.

To help those journalists do vital work, IRE awards several Freelance Fellowships annually. Thousands of dollars have been awarded to independent journalists over the past few years, and great work has resulted.

For much of this year, we have been conducting a matching fund drive to increase the power of this fellowship fund. We have almost reached our goal, and with only $3,500 remaining, our donor has now increased the size of the match to $15 for every $10 donated. That means that if you donate $30, for example, it becomes $75. And $100 becomes $250. And because this fund is endowed, it will generate money for more fellowships for many years to come. So your donation today not only multiplies immediately, it never stops supporting great journalism.
