SPJ Foundation (formerly SDX Foundation)
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 Fellowship for Editorial Writers
• Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award
Your Donation Matters!
