Several foundations have contributed approximately $1 million this fiscal year to sustain Mother Jones’ in-depth democracy reporting as America battles with economic and political downturns.

The outlet has received a recent donation worth $100,000 from Craig Newmark Philanthropies, which would allow Mother Jones to “continue pursuing investigative reporting on voter suppression, disinformation, extremism, and political corruption.”

Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein said:

“By committing to democracy as a top reporting priority more than a decade ago, Mother Jones became an early warning system for attacks on free and fair elections.

“Our reporting helps people connect the dots and understand how threats to democracy affect their communities, and how they can get involved. Craig Newmark appreciates the scale of the commitment involved, and his generous support helps keep this coverage going strong.”

Mother Jones’ democracy initiative is also supported by the Park Foundation, the Manaaki Foundation, the Colombe Peace Foundation, Barbra Streisand, the Ted Snowdon Foundation, the Wallace Global Fund, and the Jubitz Family Foundation.
