The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting extends its greatest appreciation to our supporters and donors. Primary core support for the Pulitzer Center comes from Emily Rauh Pulitzer, the Emily Rauh Pulitzer Foundation, David Moore, the David and Katherine Moore Family Foundation, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the Kendeda Fund.

Additional project-specific funding since the Center began in 2006 has come from:

  • Richard and Shirley Bansen, Abby Rockefeller and Lee Halprin, and Whole Systems Foundation in support of the Heat of the Moment Climate Change Project and reporting by Daniel Grossman.
  • AJWS in support of reporting and outreach on property rights globally.
  • Carnegie Corporation of New York in support of reporting on at-risk states and related educational initiatives, including the Fragile States project. The information flow from Pulitzer Center’s fresh, in-depth reporting greatly enhances efforts to develop coherent, fact-based approaches to these states at risk and to surface better practices in policy response.
  • The Educational Foundation of America in support of Global Gateway educational programs. Through this education initiative the Pulitzer Center engages teens and young adults in class and online by supporting development of issue-specific lesson plans, bringing journalists from the field to classrooms and promoting online dialogues about critical global affairs.

  • Conrad N. Hilton Foundation in support of the West Africa water and sanitation reporting initiative launch at World Water Week 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden.
  • Humanity United in support of reporting projects centered on labor issues surrounding key commodities of gold, shrimp and palm oil, and in support of sustained coverage of Sudan in run-up to 2011 referendum. For example, the Pulitzer Center is collaborating with PBS NewsHour and other news outlets for its Sudan: Challenges Ahead project to focus sustained public attention on Sudan, amid increasing concern about renewed north-south war and more immediate challenges including hunger.
  • Laird Norton Family Foundation for general operating support and educational outreach on global water issues, including the Pulitzer Gateway DOWNSTREAM: Our Water, Our Lives, and connections with schools and NGOs.
  • Longview Foundation in support of Global Gateway DC - Global/Local Youth Engagement to bring the Global Gateway and related issues and technical workshops to Washington, DC-area schools.

  • MAC AIDS Fund in support of HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean series including Heroes of HIV: HIV in the Caribbean, HOPE: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica and Glass Closet: Sex, Stigma and HIV/AIDS in Jamaica.

Series recognized as a Notable Entry in the 2008 Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism; LiveHopeLove.com received a 2008 Knight-Batten Honorable Mention, a 2009 Webby People's Voice Award and a 2009 Emmy for new approaches to news and documentary programming.
