Become a part of our story!
The Pulitzer Center's mission has always been to help inform and engage American audiences on the most critical issues of our time, advancing scientific, cultural, religious, environmental, political and social understanding—across borders, and within local communities.
We must promote understanding of the vital role of journalism in sustaining our democracy—and we need to deepen our techniques for increasing the credibility of journalism with the public
By providing support to cover the hard costs of reporting, we build bridges between journalists and news outlets. We promote collaborative projects across multiple outlets, from documentary productions and e-books to interactive presentations and live performances. And for the freelance journalists who carry an increasing burden of global reporting, we work to create sustainable and safe careers.
We are positioned to serve global public interest journalism in a way few organizations can—by engaging wide audiences on deeply reported topics and inspiring the next generation to value news and cross-cultural understanding.
Your support helps us achieve these vital outcomes:
- A public with a deeper understanding of critical global issues, and an increased appetite for quality international reporting;
- Resources for journalists to effectively cover global issues
- Top-tier news outlets more likely to partner to bring global stories to their audiences;
- Teachers more likely to teach global issues in their classrooms;
- Students with an increased knowledge of global issues, an appetite for more, and a deeper appreciation of what "quality" news is.
