News as we know it leaves us cynical, divided, and less informed. We want to change that, with you.
Help us raise $2.5 million by December 14 and The Correspondent will become an online platform for unbreaking news. By that we mean: we want to radically change what news is about, how it is made, and how it is funded.Read why news is broken
If we reach our $2.5 million fundraising goal, you'll get a one-year membership to The Correspondent when the platform launches in Spring 2019; a news site completely free of ads and sponsored content; and most importantly, stories every day that will help you understand the world around you.
The Correspondent is founded on 10 principles. They articulate our commitment to independent, inclusive, and ad-free journalism.
They guide all our editorial and business decisions and are safeguarded by our legal structure.Explore our 10 founding principles
