News for Good is a one-stop platform to support nonprofit news on the issues and places you care about.

Nonprofit newsrooms across the U.S. need your help to provide quality coverage and give more people a voice in public life. With News for Good, you can choose a newsroom dedicated to what you care about and give any amount.

We make it easy to help make the news better. Our vision is for journalism that is inclusive, engaging and provides millions of people with trusted information. Together with you, we are proud to be building a new and inclusive kind of American news media that serves every community.

We do this work at a time of tectonic shifts because a healthy democracy demands it.

You can trust these nonprofit news organizations because they are professionally vetted by the Institute for Nonprofit News.

Every nonprofit newsroom on News for Good abides by the highest ethical standards of journalism.

Nonprofit newsrooms are filled with journalists that have been recognized with Pulitzers, Emmys, and laurels from the Society of Professional Journalists as well as student and community reporters with deep roots in the communities where they work.

Each organization is a member of the Institute of Nonprofit News and has taken a pledge to be transparent about their donors. The news organizations here have no hidden motivation other than public service. That’s our standard.
