A Big Thank You


My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign to open Mother Jones’ new Washington, D.C., news bureau and expand our Investigative Team. The campaign is still rolling, and we’ll keep you posted as we close in on our goal of raising $60,000.

For those who contributed at a level that qualifies you for our prize drawing, the drawing will be held within the next several days, and we’ll notify the winners by email. To everyone who has made a donation, regardless of the dollar amount, we are grateful for your generosity and inspired by your confidence that there’s an important place inside the Beltway for this brand of independent, investigative journalism.

I hope you’ll check back regularly with motherjones.com and Mother Jones magazine—you’ll be able to see your investment at work.

While the deadline for our prize drawing has passed, you can still help our D.C. campaign with a tax-deductible gift to the Mother Jones Investigative Fund. For any gift of $45 or more, you’ll receive a one-year subscription to Mother Jones magazine (new or renewal).

Again, thanks for your generous support. We’ll make every dollar count.

Sincerely,

Jay Harris
President & Publisher

OUR NEW CORRUPTION PROJECT

The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
