Why Support Hostwriter?

Our mission is to raise the quality of media coverage by providing local contacts to journalists around the globe. Today, major stories span across international borders and independent quality-journalism needs to reflect this. We see cross-border journalism as a tool to overcome national bias and prejudice, ultimately contributing towards better informed, more accountable and democratic societies.

Hostwriter connects journalists to easily seek and offer help, whether in the form of story collaboration, local advice or accommodation, and provide training and publication opportunities with our newsroom Unbias the News. Since our launch in May 2014, over 6600 colleagues from more than 123 countries have used the platform for journalistic collaborations.

Hostwriter can issue tax-deductible donation receipts to supporters based in Germany, and we are recognized as an equivalent to a U.S. public charity by NGOsource (valid til 31.12.2024).
