We also extend our deepest gratitude to the many individuals and organizations who supported the Committee to Protect Journalists with gifts below $1,000 and cannot be recognized in this list because of space limitations.


Some of the vital resources that help make possible the work of CPJ are in-kind services and contributions. We thank the following for their support during the past year:

The Associated Press, CBC Newsworld, CBS, CNN, IDT, Radio-Télévision Belge de la Communauté Française, Dan Rather, Reuters, RFE/RL



The Committee to Protect Journalists is proud to continue its partnership in working with LEXIS-NEXIS, whose continued in-kind donation of technology services is crucial to our mission in the 21st century.




Continental Airlines is the preferred carrier for the Committee to Protect Journalists.
