Donate to the WFSJ

“Journalists have the depth of knowledge to provide information that is truthful, trustworthy, and effective, in a language that is engaging and useful for the public at large. Without credible information, there will be no trust.”

Christophe Bourillon
Executive Director WFSJ

Why donate?

When you make a donation to the WFSJ, you will join us in our mission to support critical coverage of scientific issues through initiatives that train, mentor, and educate science journalists internationally.

Monetary donations are most useful in supporting our operations, creating online toolkits such as on infectious diseases, developing webinars and MOOCs, and helping journalists cover stories in which science and technology play an important role.

As a monthly donor, you will be of even greater support to science journalism. Your monthly gift will provide a consistent and reliable source of funding that allows us to plan ahead, enabling the WFSJ to fulfil its important work around the world.

An official donation receipt will be issued qualifying for charitable tax credits depending on the tax regulations applicable in your country.

Donation cancellation

We don’t want to see you go because your monthly financial contribution does mean a lot to us and to science journalism. However, just send a simple email to with the details of your cancellation and we will take care of it.
