Support amaB. Support democracy. Amabhungane

The amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism is registered with CIPC as a non-profit company and with SARS as a public benefit organisation.

Investigative journalism takes time and money. Our annual budget of about R8-million is supported by grants, mostly from charitable foundations, and increasingly by donations from members of the public – our “amaB Supporters”.

We are independent. We do not sell advertising and do not accept grants from governments or corporates. We also do not accept grants earmarked for specific stories or themes. We define grants as donations above R6 000/year.
