Journalism Needs You. Support Poynter.

The role of accountability journalism has never been more important during this season of fake news and rapid claims. For more than four decades, The Poynter Institute has been highly regarded as a global leader in journalism excellence, training more than 100,000 journalists worldwide last year alone.

Poynter teaches the value of accuracy and transparency. We teach ethical decision-making and leadership, critical in this time of rapid change. And, as the home of the International Fact-Checking Network, we’re at the center of the movement where journalists help the public know what’s true.

Poynter can teach fact-checking to more people, expand our work in media ethics and prepare journalists for the modern challenges they face in a time of rapid disruption and increased demand.

Together, we can ensure an informed electorate and a healthy democracy.
