Sigma Delta Chi Foundation

Philanthropic gifts to the Society's supporting foundation, the 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 Sigma Delta Chi 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.

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


The Sigma Delta Chi Foundation: Your Donation Matters

The work of the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation depends on time, talent and financial support from journalists and others who support these goals. Our online giving process will only take a few moments. Please visit our donation page to support SPJ and the SDX Foundation.

With the conclusion of another election cycle, we were reminded in 2012 of the important role journalism plays in our society. But we must also reflect on the need to continue investing in this public service.

In 2012, the Sigma Delta Chi (SDX) Foundation used tax-deductible donations from supporters and journalists like you to invest in SPJ programs and members across the country. These investments included: — Direct grants to SPJ chapters for professional training at the grassroots level
— Open-records workshops through our Access Across America tour
— A national diversity-outreach program to broaden our coalition
— Cutting-edge workplace training, including mobile newsgathering
— Awards programs that recognize and fosters excellence in journalism
— Ongoing support for the Student Press Law Center (SPLC) and the National Freedom of Information Coalition (NFOIC)

These investments are possible thanks to contributions by people who believe in high quality journalism. People like you. Make an online donation now to the SDX Foundation.

If you have questions, feel free to contact SDX Foundation President Robert Leger or Associate Executive Director Chris Vachon.
