for general operating support  
Since 2008, ProPublica has produced high quality, investigative journalism in the public interest. It is an independent newsroom with 34 working journalists, led by some of the nation’s most distinguished editors, and its goal is to stimulate positive change and reform. It investigates business and government, the two biggest centers of power, in areas ranging from product safety to securities fraud, from flaws in our criminal justice system to practices that undermine fair elections. ProPublica also focuses on such institutions as unions, universities, hospitals, foundations, and on the media when they constitute the strong exploiting or oppressing the weak, or when they are abusing the public trust. In just three years, ProPublica has published hundreds of major stories with more than eighty partners, ranging from the NY Times, Washington Post, and USA Today, to PBS NewsHour, NPR, and Frontline, to the Huffington Post, Daily Beast, and Yahoo!. It has more than 80,000 Twitter followers, 23,000 Facebook fans, and 53,000 subscribers to its daily email. ProPublica's stories have also won numerous awards, including two Pulitzer Prizes, a National Magazine Award, and three Overseas Press Club Awards.
