Pulitzer Center

Highlighting critical local, national, and global issues through journalism and public engagement.


The Pulitzer Center is an innovative, award-winning nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to raising awareness of the connections between underreported local, national, and global issues through direct support for quality journalism across all media platforms and a unique program of education and public engagement. The result is sustained reporting and outreach on topics that range from climate change and global health, to racial, gender, and economic justice, and peace and conflict.

About our journalism

We support nearly 200 reporting projects a year, in partnership with more than 150 news organizations—from The New York Times, PBS NewsHour, and The New Yorker to BuzzFeed News, El País, Tempo, Agência Pública, and BBC—with an increasing focus on regional and local outlets to ensure we are reaching audiences that are truly diverse.

We organize 700-plus events a year with K-12 schools, colleges, and the general public, in person as well as virtual. We have deep partnerships with 35-plus colleges and universities, providing on-campus journalist visits and reporting fellowships for students through our Campus Consortium. We also serve as the official education partner of The 1619 Project.

Editors and journalists say that without our support these kinds of stories simply wouldn’t happen. Our mission has never been more urgent: to support accurate, responsible journalism and to do everything we can to engage all people, across the political spectrum and the divides of class, race, and religion.
