News Aid

The Fourth Estate Alliance was formed in 2018 to encourage, support and empower independent freelance journalism, primarily through a key project to bring journalists into a virtual newsroom environment that will help them to provide high-quality news to media partners.

Even so, most independent freelancers do not enjoy regular incomes, leaving them struggling to find enough money to pay bills.

Now, we offer you the opportunity to support this ground-breaking network by subsidising freelancers in a country or region of your choice to cover a subject you choose. We accept no advertising, or anything that would interfere with our mission of supporting the work of independent freelance journalists.

If you wish to support our work, you can contribute by bank transfer, cheque or direct PayPal payment. To see the current list of approved topics and regions for sponsorship click here (opens in a new window).
