Boston University College of Communication
The Boston University’s College of Communication journalism program—through NECIR– trains reporters and serves the community by generating in-depth investigative reporting. The College of Communication is committed to supporting this important effort. Each year, its contribution funds a portion of the salary and benefits of the center’s two full-time staff and other operational expenses.
Contributions from individual donors are an important and significant source of support for NECIR’s work. NECIR aims to raise a total of $100,000 annually from individuals who are committed to our mission and our work.
Each year, an increasing percentage of NECIR’s budget is funded from earned revenue. In 2011, NECIR reached a milestone—about half of its operating costs were covered by revenue from training program tuition and content sales, including fees collected from subscribers to our “Public Eye” monthly investigative report.
