Millions of people have turned to The Conversation in the past year, and our readership has doubled. They read articles with the latest research on SARS-CoV-2 and vaccines, fact-based election coverage, analyses of racial disparities in our society and answers to the questions of curious kids. All of them written by experts, and expertly edited by our team.

To launch us into our next fiscal year in good financial health, we’re asking for your support. And we’d especially appreciate it if you could commit to a sustaining gift to provide reliable income through the next 12 months.

We’re a nonprofit organization and every gift, no matter how small, goes toward creating independent, research-based journalism. Thank you in advance.

And if you need any evidence for the quality and value of what we do, look at these articles we’ve published today:
