About

The TNCR presents news and commentary from diverse voices about global affairs, the environment, culture, society, religion, human rights,  and women's equality. Our student journalists report on Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas. With over 1.6m social media shares and 253,000 Facebook, we at TNCR challenge readers to move beyond the standard reporting purveyed by most media. 

We seek your financial support to enable us to expand our team of journalists, editors, and outreach. We are committed to presenting stories free from the distraction of unwanted, intrusive, and inappropriate advertisement, but to do this, we must raise money $20,000 or more.

These are the following initiatives for which we are seeking support.

1.  Currently, our student writers contribute on an as-available basis; however, with the money raised through this campaign, we will be able to pay our committed journalists $40 per article. 

2.  An annual subscription to Submittable for $2,000 needs to be purchased to enable contributors to submit ‘Pitches easily,’ and for our editors to quickly review, select, and publish submissions.

3.  Money raised will be used to promote student journalists’ articles on our TNCR Facebook Page as well as other social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Monthly advertisement budgets average $750, and the funds raised through this campaign are dedicated to this purpose.

4.  We will provide financial reports to our donors detailing burn rates every week.

Read more about our TNCR Journalists, and you will understand why this is such a worthwhile project and how it will help elevate the voices of the next generation.

As the publisher and founder of the TNCR, I invite you to learn more about me by visiting my webpage, Ayanna Nahmias.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Risks and challenges

The TNCR has been publishing since 2009, but we need financial support to maintain our independence and integrity. Your support will help us expand to the next level, and our ability to pay for writers and marketing will provide stability needed for growth.
