Why Donate?

Mother Teresa once joked that she preferred bathing lepers to meeting with the press.


We understand. Religion is a complex topic that is at the core of much that happens in the world. But not all journalists know enough about it to ask informed questions.


That’s why we are here. We have close to 70 years of experience studying the critical issues that intersect religion. During the past 10 years alone, we have developed $11 million worth of initiatives to help journalists do a better job.

  • Our main resources are ReligionLink, the Religion Stylebook, Reporting on Religion: A Primer on Journalism’s Best Beat (PDF), and the RNA Annual Conference.
  • We link journalists to hundreds of scholars around the world who possess in-depth knowledge about religion and its relationship to politics, health, science, education, the arts and more.
  • Most of our money goes into these resources. Religion Newswriters about 90 cents of every dollar on resource development. 
  • Each project has its own goals, which we monitor and measure to ensure we meet our objectives. 

But don't take our word for it. Read what the experts have to say:


"I don’t expect journalists who track the church to agree with everything she teaches. But I do think reporters should have a working knowledge of her traditions and teachings. Good reporting has social and moral gravity.”

—The Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia


"Religion, more than many other beats, really requires beat reporters to know complex history on many subjects and to understand the nuances of spirituality and faith identity. We rely on RNA for help doing this.”

—Michelle Boorstein, The Washington Post
