The Guardian has reported 1,000,035 digital subscriptions, comprising 419,541 digital subscriptions and 580,494 recurring contributions from supporters in 180 countries globally, with the biggest groups in the U.S., Australia and the European Union.

The Guardian’s international revenues increased by 26 percent in financial year 2020-21, now representing over 30 percent of the publisher’s total revenue.

Katharine Viner, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media said:

“Six years since we first asked readers to contribute financially to support Guardian journalism, the strategy has been brilliantly successful. It is a tribute to the deep connection we have with readers that so many have chosen to support us without the imposition of a paywall.

“Thank you to Guardian readers around the world for helping to keep our journalism open and available to all, not just those who can afford it.”
