Over our 11-year history, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism has trained more than 50 young journalists and public engagement and marketing professionals. As the pandemic has ravaged the world, former Wisconsin Watch interns have been there to document it and provide crucial information to help the public navigate COVID-19.
We all can do our part to ensure fact-checked, in-depth reporting continues into 2021 and beyond. Join us in supporting Wisconsin Watch by giving a one-time gift of $60, $120, $240 or whatever you’re able to give.
This pandemic has upended life in Wisconsin, as it has around the globe. Each day in this state thousands of people are diagnosed with COVID-19, dozens of people die and many, many more struggle to keep a roof over their heads and food on their tables. This new reality has added greater weight to the journalism we produce at Wisconsin Watch to protect the vulnerable, expose wrongdoing and explore solutions.
For this year’s #GivingTuesday, we set a one-day goal of $5,000 for the first time in the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism’s history. We hoped that we could reach it by midnight to meet an inspiring match offered by donor Barbara Johnson. By 5 o’clock, your gifts exceeded our goal and by the end of the day, the grand total reached $6,848! On top of that, over a third of you who donated were first-time supporters of the Center and Wisconsin Watch, our newsroom.
In honor of #GivingTuesday, will you join Barbara and our many other generous donors by giving a donation today? This dollar-for-dollar $5,000 match is only available today. Make your year-end donation to Wisconsin Watch right now!
