Our Donors

Award-winning investigative journalism is priceless — but it is not free. The Center for Public Integrity is fortunate to enjoy the generous support of foundations and individuals around the world.

Funding supports our editorial priorities, such as the environment, money in politics, immigration and other editorial areas, but it never determines the Center’s editorial direction. We maintain a strict firewall between funding and our editorial content. Our funders and donors support us because our investigations are non-partisan, fair, have impact and raise the level of debate on complex issues of critical, global importance.

Our list of funders below includes gifts made in 2017. For more information about supporting the Center for Public Integrity, please contact Mrs. Abeo Venzor (avenzor@publicintegrity.org) at 202-481-1267.
