SPJ Foundation (formerly SDX Foundation)

Philanthropic gifts to the Society's supporting foundation, the Society of Professional Journalists Foundation (formerly Sigma Delta Chi Foundation), supports the educational mission of SPJ.

The foundation returns thousands of dollars back to the journalism community in support of both SPJ and other journalism organizations that benefit SPJ members. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity and gifts are tax deductible.

The SPJ Foundation's mission is to perpetuate a free press as a cornerstone of our nation and our liberty. To ensure that the concept of self-government outlined by the Constitution survives and flourishes, the American people must be well informed. They need a free press to guide them in their personal decisions and in the management of their local and national communities. It is the role of journalists to provide fair, balanced and accurate information in a comprehensive, timely and understandable manner.
