Where does the money come from? Our fundraising is conducted according to the following key principles: full transparency, independence and no editorial interference. The overview is meant to give you an idea of where our money comes from; it is not a detailed financial report.

Information to U.S.-based funders: Journalismfund.eu has completed the ED process with NGOsource. NGOsource certifies EDs for U.S. grantmakers so they can meet their tax compliance requirements and donate to Journalismfund.eu with fewer restrictions. Journalismfund.eu’s Equivalency Determination certification is valid through December 31, 2021.
