We are also the winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting and the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting.
Our mission: To serve democracy by revealing abuses of power, corruption and betrayal of public trust by powerful public and private institutions, using the tools of investigative journalism.
The Center is a nonprofit digital news organization; it is nonpartisan and does no advocacy work. The Center for Public Integrity is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
