Gifts to TON through December 31 Will Be Doubled!

Graphic with TON logo and the words "High-quality science journalism has never been more important. Gifts to The Open Notebook through Dec. 31 will be doubled (up to $8,500 total).


Dear TON community,

The importance of high-quality science journalism has never been more evident. Over the last 11 years, thanks to the generosity of those who have shared their time and hard-won insights with this community, The Open Notebook has published more than 500 articles and other resources aimed at helping science journalists improve their skills. We depend on the financial support of our community. If you find The Open Notebook’s mission to be a valuable one, please consider making a donation or a monthly recurring contribution. All gifts are tax-deductible. Thanks to a pool of 24 matching donors, gifts to The Open Notebook made from now through December 31 will be doubled, up to a total of $8,500. At least half of the funds we raise between now and the end of the year will be earmarked for our Spanish translations program, TON en Español


Here is a snapshot of what we’ve done in the past year: 

There’s a lot more that we want to do to support the science journalism community, during this turbulent time and beyond. In addition to continuing to publish in-depth articles on the craft of science writing, we’ll further expand our Spanish translations program, mentoring programs, and free courses. We’re launching a peer-mentoring program for local and general-assignment journalists who want to improve their skills and confidence in covering science. And we’re also planning a series of craft-focused webinars and virtual trainings for science writers and editors.

The Open Notebook is an essential resource for science journalists and aspiring science writers. Thank you for helping to make our work possible!
