Wall of Heroes

Journalists are heroes of democracy. This fall, we're asking you to honor your journalism heroes by supporting SEJ's work to increase and improve environmental journalism. If you have a journalism hero, tell us using #HonoringTheHeroes. Make a contribution to SEJ in their name and we'll add them to our Wall of Heroes below. And you'll both know that you're helping the reporters who tell the world's greatest stories.

How your gift helps journalists:

  • Your gift in general support of SEJ Programs covers costs of ambitious plans for conferences, publications, awards and other educational programs for environmental journalists.

  • Your gift in general support of SEJ's Fund for Environmental Journalism will be used to underwrite small grants available to qualified journalists, covering costs of worthy reporting projects that are not yet complete. Winners are selected through a competitive process.

  • Your gift to SEJ's 21st Century Endowment Fund protects the future of environmental journalism. Fundraising for SEJ's endowment is led by an endowment committee appointed by the SEJ Board.

  • Your gift to The "Lizzie" Grant helps cover travel and other expenses related to sustained coverage (e.g. a series of articles) of a particular topic in environmental health (offered under the Fund for Environmental Journalism).


Legacy giving:

Have you thought about providing for SEJ in your will or through your investments? The easiest and most common method of charitable planned giving is by means of a bequest in your will. A will is the legal expression of your wishes for the disposition of your property to take effect at death. However, implementing some or all of your charitable planning during your lifetime can offer some advantages. Read more here.
