BINJ Summer Appeal!

For nearly 10 years, the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism has been producing bold investigative reporting on critical issues that are generally ignored or misunderstood by the mainstream media. Among many other subjects, our recent reporting on criminal justice, housing, and the environment have challenged the status quo, shaken up the powerful, and spurred proposals for reform.

In addition to grassroots investigative journalism, BINJ leads reporting collaborations and civic engagement initiatives, trains new and less-experienced journalists, and builds coalitions of independent nonprofit newsrooms locally, regionally, and nationally. For a small nonprofit, we have a very large impact on the growing movement to revive public-interest journalism in this country.

And we want to do more! There’s so much corruption, incompetence, and discrimination that’s not being covered by mainstream Massachusetts media outlets. We have the skilled journalists, the inside sources, and the courage to pursue these important stories. But we need your help to get the job done!

For our semi-annual appeal to our readers, we need to raise $3,000 during the month of June. If you believe in the work we’re doing, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today! Thanks for helping us hold the powerful accountable – in Greater Boston and beyond.
