    The mission of The Center for Investigative Reporting is to
    engage and empower the public through investigative journalism and
    groundbreaking storytelling in order to spark action, improve lives and
    protect our democracy.

    CIR is among the most innovative, credible and relevant media
    organizations in the country. Reveal – our website, public radio
    program, podcast and social media platform – is where we publish our
    multiplatform work.

    Our award-winning journalists hold the powerful accountable and
    reveal government fraud and waste of taxpayer funds, human rights
    violations, environmental degradation and threats to public safety. We
    consistently shine a bright light on injustice and protect the most
    vulnerable in our society.

    From the San Francisco Bay Area epicenter of technological and
    creative innovation, our reporting ignites real-world change as
    evidenced by civil and criminal investigations, new laws and policies,
    the instigation of public discourse and solutions-oriented community

    Founded in 1977, CIR is nationally respected for setting the highest
    journalistic standards, and for our signature approach to investigative
    reporting and collaboration. We partner with numerous other media
    organizations, prioritize impact over exclusivity, engage with the
    public and track results. To reach a broad and diverse audience
    worldwide, we publish our stories online, as well as for print,
    television, radio/audio, video and live events.

    With PRX, CIR co-produces the nationally distributed “Reveal” radio
    show and podcast. “Reveal” features CIR’s reporting, as well as stories
    from public radio stations and a wide range of media partners, both
    nonprofit and commercial.

    Our work has been recognized for its excellence, groundbreaking
    creativity and impact. Recent awards include: Emmy Awards, a George
    Foster Peabody Award, a Military Reporters and Editors Award, a Barlett
    & Steele Gold Award for investigative business journalism, Alfred I.
    DuPont-Columbia University Awards, a George Polk Award, IRE Awards for
    multiplatform journalism and an Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative
    reporting. We were a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2012 and 2013
    and a recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective

    Editorial independence policy

    We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News.

    Our organization retains full authority over editorial content,
    maintaining a firewall between news coverage decisions and the pursuit
    of revenue. Accepting financial support does not constitute implied or
    actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

    We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and
    organizations for the general support of our activities, but all
    editorial decisions are made independently, not on the basis of donor
    support. At times, we accept support for coverage of particular topics,
    but those topics are determined by our editorial staff, and we maintain
    full editorial control of the resulting coverage. Donors receive no
    preferential coverage, have no right to review editorial content before
    it is published and do not influence the direction or findings of our
    reporting in any way.

    We do not accept donations from government entities, political
    parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office,
    nor do we accept donations from sources who our board of directors deem
    could present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our
    editorial independence.
