Who we are
Since its founding in 1961, the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation has promoted excellence and ethics in journalism. The SDX Foundation is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization that supports the educational programs of the Society of Professional Journalists and serves the professional needs of journalists and students pursuing careers in journalism.

Liberty and self-government require a well-informed public. It is the responsibility of journalists to provide fair, balanced and accurate information in a comprehensive, timely and ethical manner.

The SDX Foundation helps by:
– Advocating for open government
– Promoting integrity
– Encouraging excellence
– Fostering diversity
– Inspiring new generations of talented journalists
– Protecting freedom of speech and press

Through the years, the SDX Foundation has created a legacy of worthwhile programs to achieve these aims, including:
Pulliam/Kilgore Freedom of Information Internships
Eugene C. Pulliam Editorial Fellowship
Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award
Diversity Leadership Program
Robert D.G Lewis First Amendment Award
– Taischoff Memorial Fund
Harper Memorial Scholarships
