Are you worried about democracy? So are we.

That is why we support investigative reporting. Why? Because that serves the public interest. Go to "Supported Projects" to see lots of examples.

We dare to say that - thanks to the work of investigative journalists - independent, in-depth reporting can make a difference. But it's not that easy. Investigative journalism is in danger. Due to instability, precarity, stress, isolation, censorship, harassment. Only in 2022, around the world 533 journalists were imprisoned (65 journalists are being held hostage and 49 are missing) and 57 journalists were killed. Investigative journalism needs safety, support, funds, networking and training.

Independent journalism connects people with democracy. Journalism is about the people.

So, are you worried about democracy? So are we. That's why since 1999 we have supported more than 1,500 investigative projects, connecting donors with thousands of journalists around the world. You can help us. Independent investigative journalism needs your support. Donate today.

Please mention your name and e-mail address.

Of course we also gladly accept donations from business donors and companies, but only provided that this money comes with no strings attached. Independence is a priority in everything we do. Business donors will therefore be asked to issue a statement of one or two sentences beginning with: “We support Journalismfund Europe because…” These statements will be included on our funding page for reasons of transparency. No other return will be given.
