Welcome to InDepthNH.org, the nonprofit watchdog news website published by the New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism. We are thrilled today to reach out to you, our readers, for the first time to say:  Please join us and please help us continue by sending us your tax-deductible donation. We believe that vigorous, in-depth news coverage focused on government and public servants is the bedrock of a thriving democracy.

We promise to hold government accountable, and we will offer free use of our stories to all New Hampshire media. Our ultimate goal is to foster civil debate and spur citizens to action in a way that will make government more responsive to its citizens. The New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism is sponsored by the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.  If you make a donation to us, please make it to INN and earmark your check for The New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism. Then, your deduction will be tax deductible. INN will pay our bills and salaries using the funds you donate to us.

As our fiscal sponsors, INN handles all accounting matters, including filing the New Hampshire Center for Public Interest Journalism’s income taxes, which we will post annually. We are dedicated to transparency.  All tax-deductible donations over $1,000 will be posted on our website. We also post our editorial independence and ethics policies. We are in the midst of a perfect storm in which shifts in how news is financed, gathered and delivered has drastically reduced independent journalism just when it is needed most to counter the backroom erosion of our democratic principles by money and greed.

Please become a member, donor or underwriter and advertise on InDepthNH.org. Click here to donate or become a member. This is your site. We are dedicated to fearlessly seeking the truth and giving you the news you need to make informed decisions.
