Community-funded journalism expands our reporting
Like many newsrooms across the country, The Daily Herald has established several journalism funds that enable us to expand our reporting to meet community needs.
For each of these journalism funds, we partner with a nonprofit fiscal sponsor so you can make a tax-deductible donation that invests in trusted, local news.
Investigative Journalism Fund
Investigative journalism is one of the most time-intensive and expensive types of reporting. It holds those in power accountable, validates those who often feel invisible, and seeks to right wrongs. This fund is a partnership between The Daily Herald and Journalism Funding Partners, tax ID #84-2968843, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
Environmental and Climate Change Reporting Fund
This ambitious initiative sheds light on how climate change impacts Snohomish County’s environment, economy, and health and what our community is doing about it. This fund is a partnership between The Daily Herald and Journalism Funding Partners, tax ID #84-2968843, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
Education Project Fund
Our dedicated education reporter covers the challenges and successes of K-12 in collaboration with Report for America, a national service initiative that places journalists in local newsrooms. This fund is a partnership between The Daily Herald and The GroundTruth Project, tax ID #46-0908502, the nonprofit journalism organization that supports the Report for America program.
