The International Women’s Media Foundation has partnered with the Craig Newmark Philanthropies to establish the United States Journalism Emergency Fund to directly support U.S. journalists in need so they can resume work essential to our functioning democracy. Applicants must be U.S. journalists with journalism serving as their primary profession and must provide proof of their financial need.
Funding is available to both staff journalists and those working independently. Available to U.S. based journalists regardless of gender (including male identifying), these funds will support journalists with immediate needs related to their professional work; support long-term needs such as trauma, mental health services and referrals to legal support; and, support journalists targeted as a result of their reporting at events related to the highly charged political unrest in the U.S.
Requests will be reviewed in the order they were received. Learn more by visiting IWMF.
