The Badger Project

Nonpartisan, nonprofit, investigative journalism in Wisconsin


The Badger Project is a nonpartisan journalism nonprofit in Wisconsin that investigates state government, politics, donors, and related matters. Our goal is to empower Wisconsin residents with fact-based information so they can make informed decisions in their lives and in the voting booth. With the decline of news sources around the state, we focus on providing coverage for areas — both in topic and location — that don’t get much attention.

About our journalism

We don’t have advertisements or a paywall, so we are mainly funded by donations.
