About Us

Founded in 2005, Truthdig is an award-winning, independent online news

magazine. As a truly progressive platform, Truthdig is dedicated to reporting

on issues that are insufficiently covered by mainstream media. The website’s

mission is to dig beneath the headlines, provide expert reporting and

commentary and offer an outlet for original work by exceptional journalists.

Truthdig is a hybrid with for-profit and non-profit components. Our non-

profit arm, Truthdig Fund, is fiscally sponsored by philanthropic partner and

nonprofit accelerator Tides.

The Truthdig Fund at Tides is at the core of Truthdig’s operation. Through

the non-profit, Truthdig is able to give overlooked and underappreciated

voices and perspectives a platform to inspire positive change in the world.

Our steadfast commitment brings us grants from foundations and

philanthropists and contributions from readers who want to ensure that

excellent reporting and commentary thrive on the web.

The Truthdig Fund at Tides has several special projects. Through Global

Voices: Truthdig Women Reporting, Truthdig hires female journalists from

around the globe to write about issues affecting people in their home

countries. Truthdig Fund also sponsors Countering Violence Against Women,

a series in which skilled writers shed light on gender-based violence.

Additionally, grants for activism enable us to send correspondents to the

front lines of events like the Women’s March, the Poor People’s Campaign

and #StopKavanaugh.

The Truthdig Fund at Tides also regularly allocates funds for reporting on

vital issues related to the environment, social justice, prison reform and the


Unlike at most media companies, ads and the income they produce do not

play a big role in Truthdig’s operation. The site is not influenced by

advertisers or shareholders and is not controlled by any outside entity.
