Today, you’ll notice ProPublica’s share buttons come with an added incentive: for every story you share through email, Facebook or Twitter, we’ll receive a donation from The Woolley Fund.
This share-to-support experiment is powered by Impaq.Me, a tool being developed by the Investigative News Network to help nonprofit newsrooms like ours raise money through micro-giving. During this campaign, Buzz Woolley will make a donation to our newsroom for every article you share for a total gift of $5,000.
All you have to do to participate is share our stories as you normally would. If you’d like to make your own donation (and we appreciate every bit of support), you can do that, too. But it’s not required.
As a small nonprofit, every Tweet and Facebook share helps spread the word about the investigative journalism we work so hard to produce — and now, your shares will bring an additional measure of support. So thanks as always for reading, and especially for sharing!
