Donate to the Global Reporting Centre

The Global Reporting Centre is based at the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, Media and Writing. All donations made to the GRC through UBC’s donation portal will go directly towards supporting the Centre. UBC is a registered charitable organization, which means your donation may qualify for a tax credit. All supporters will receive a UBC tax receipt by email.
