This funding is not intended to make up for a journalists' entire financial loss, but to provide a few hundred dollars that may help them in the next month with rent, bills and equipment.
Paige Cornwell, a reporter in Seattle, Wash., will be responsible for withdrawing and distributing the funds to journalists who submitted a financial assistance form. After we reach our fundraising goal we will distribute a list of journalists who received help (by location, so no specific identifying information), how much they received and a brief explanation of why they need financial assistance. The recipient will have money sent through their platform of choice (Venmo, bank transfer, etc.)

We're organizing this fund on behalf of ourselves, not our employers.
