My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported the campaign to open Mother Jones’ new Washington, D.C., news bureau and expand our Investigative Team. The campaign is still rolling, and we’ll keep you posted as we close in on our goal of raising $60,000.

For those who contributed at a level that qualifies you for our prize drawing, the drawing will be held within the next several days, and we’ll notify the winners by email. To everyone who has made a donation, regardless of the dollar amount, we are grateful for your generosity and inspired by your confidence that there’s an important place inside the Beltway for this brand of independent, investigative journalism.

I hope you’ll check back regularly with motherjones.com and Mother Jones magazine—you’ll be able to see your investment at work.

While the deadline for our prize drawing has passed, you can still help our D.C. campaign with a tax-deductible gift to the Mother Jones Investigative Fund. For any gift of $45 or more, you’ll receive a one-year subscription to Mother Jones magazine (new or renewal).

Again, thanks for your generous support. We’ll make every dollar count.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

Headshot of Editor in Chief of Mother Jones, Clara Jeffery

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
