The Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism is an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan news service and we are the preeminent Iowa organization for training current and future investigative journalists. We are committed to increasing the demand for and understanding of vetted, verified journalism.
We depend on your generosity to maintain and develop current programs working with colleges, universities and high schools, and the local Iowa community in an effort to train future investigative journalists and encourage a well-informed public, productive public discourse, and, therefore, a strong democracy.
In the past year, donations have supported student internships, high-school and college journalists, live storytelling events, public forums and more.
