Sponsors and Supporters

donateThe Global Investigative Journalism Network is a nonprofit organization registered in the U.S. state of Maryland. Most of its budget comes from foundation support in the form of grants and, to a lesser extent, from individual donations, in-kind contributions, conference fees, and speaking and consulting fees. Contributions for U.S. taxpayers are 100% tax deductible. To contribute, please go to this link.

GIJN receives generous core support from the Open Society Foundations, which has supported GIJN since its founding as a loose network in 2003, and as a startup nonprofit from the Netherlands-based Adessium Foundation. The Ford Foundation provides critical capacity building funds, and additional core support comes from  the Switzerland-based Oak Foundation and, in the United States, Humanity United, the Reva & David Logan Foundation, and the Bay and Paul Foundations.

For conference support, we also thank the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Google News Lab. MacArthur Foundation, and Arcus Foundation. In past years additional funding has come from Google and Omidyar Network, with in-kind support from the Knight Chair in Investigative Reporting in the Journalism Department at the University of Illinois on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and the Institute for Nonprofit News for fiscal sponsorship and IT support.
