ProPublica is an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism with moral force. ProPublica digs deep into important issues, shining a light on abuses of power and betrayals of public trust — and sticks with those issues as long as it takes to hold power to account.

With a team of more than 50 dedicated reporters and editors, ProPublica covers a range of topics including government and politics, business, criminal justice, the environment, education, health care, immigration, and technology. ProPublica focuses on stories with the potential to spur real-world impact. Among other positive changes, ProPublica reporting has contributed to the passage of new laws; reversals of harmful policies and practices; and accountability for leaders at local, state and national levels. [Gift Year: 2017]
