The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting was founded to provide in-depth, on-the-ground investigative and enterprise reporting on agribusiness and related issues. That need continues, and our journalists work hard every day to achieve our nonprofit mission.

There are upsides and downsides to being a nonprofit. We don’t answer to shareholders. We don't run in-your-face ads to turn a quick buck. But we do depend on readers to step up and support the work. If our readers don't support the work, we don't exist. That's the business model for our public interest journalism.

There are just six more hours to help us reach our fundraising goal of$50,000.

Thanks to NewsMatch, all new monthly donations will be multiplied 12x, and annual and one-time donations will be tripled. We’re counting on you to help us get there.

By making a donation, you’re supporting everyone on staff—and allowing the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting to remain a place where transparent journalism can thrive.

Help us fuel a healthy free press, and have your tax-deductible donation matched now!

With gratitude,
Pam Dempsey
Executive Director
