NewsMatch, a grassroots campaign to support nonprofit news in the U.S. starts November 1, 2021. Since 2016 NewsMatch has raised over $150 million to keep nonprofit journalism like ours going strong.

Here’s how it works.

Starting November 1 — through December 31— NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12 times or double your one-time gift, all up to $1,000. That means that, through NewsMatch, our donations will be doubled (up to $10,000)!

Your tax-deductible donation supports us in our pursuit of investigative and enterprise journalism. We can’t do this without your support.

Your donation in any amount is appreciated.


What does my donation do?

Your donation lets us do our job. It pays for our newsroom to dig deep on important issues in the midwest that impact people throughout the world.

Most of our work is shared for republication with media outlets across the country – helping to fill a gap between the lack of newsroom resources and critical, in-depth coverage of issues that impact our food and fuel systems in rural communities as well as urban areas.

Can I send my donation by mail?

Yes, send it to Investigate Midwest
701 Devonshire Dr., C-203B
Champaign, IL 61820

Will I receive a receipt?

Yes, you will receive a thank you and a receipt for your tax-deductible donation.

Donation policy

We are an independent nonprofit newsroom. No donations alter our journalistic integrity or influence our decisions.
