WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR MONEY
Individual and corporate donations help us investigate, publicize, and protest attacks on press freedom worldwide. CPJ responds whenever a journalist is in peril. We also assist journalists with urgent needs, such as emergency evacuation, resettlement in exile, medicine, and legal defense. CPJ publishes articles and news releases, special reports, a biannual publication called Dangerous Assignments, and Attacks on the Press, the most comprehensive annual book on press freedom around the world.
Every report we author and distribute, every campaign we undertake to free jailed journalists, and all our missions to countries where journalists are in distress are funded entirely by donations and gifts from supporters. Your tax-deductible contribution and membership will make a crucial difference in the lives of embattled journalists worldwide.
DONATING TO CPJ
In November 2002, CPJ launched a "Comprehensive Campaign" to build the organization's long-term financial stability, with a goal of raising $12 million and creating a permanent endowment. Our campaign is off to a very positive start, with leadership support from major media organizations and corporations dedicated to press freedom (click here for a list of supporters). We invite you to join our campaign; your donations will help CPJ continue to work on behalf of journalists worldwide and to defend those who risk their lives to bring us the news. CPJ is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible. To make individual donations to the campaign, please contact the Development Department at (212) 465-9344 ext. 144 or email@example.com.
Many organizations will match their employees' contributions to nonprofit organizations. Please contact your public/corporate affairs office and find out if your company will match your contribution to CPJ. All donations are tax-deductible.
CPJ is extremely grateful to its many corporate donors, which include major media organizations, corporations, and financial institutions. All corporate donors are recognized in CPJ promotional materials; are listed in the current supporters section of our Web site; receive the biannual magazine Dangerous Assignments, the electronic newsletter CPJ Update, and our annual publication on press freedom worldwide, Attacks on the Press. Corporate donors are also given priority access to tables at our annual International Press Freedom Awards dinner, which has been a sold-out event for more than 12 years.
