Become a Member, Support Journalism

KyCIR’s journalism is free to all on the web. We intend to keep it that way. But this work takes time, resources and money. We need your support.

We believe investigative journalism is a necessity, not a luxury. Your support helps fill our gas tanks as we drive across the state, knocking on doors and digging through records. It pays for our equipment, our reporting tools, our telephone lines. It helps in our fight for public documents that public agencies try to keep hidden.




Your donation will directly fund our newsroom and our news-gathering efforts. And in addition to backing our public service journalism, you garner benefits like membership to Louisville Public Media, which operates three public radio stations in addition to our newsroom.

Like what you read or heard? Thought we provided useful information or provoked thought or action? Want to assist in our fight for public transparency and access? Support us. Contribute.
