Why we ask you for support

We are deeply thankful for the generous support of foundations such as Adessium Foundation and Rudolf Augstein Foundation and we see philanthropy as an existential pillar for Hostwriter. In order to increase our financial sustainability, we've nevertheless drawn up the ambitious plan to secure 50% of our total fixed costs through alternative revenue streams in the near future.


Our goal: Securing €10,000 per month.

How do we get there?

We plan to develop three alternative revenue streams in addition to philanthropic funding:

Hostwriter provides trainings in “Cross-Border Journalism“ for a fee.

Our first Hostwriter book Unbias the News. Why diversity matters for journalism is out on sale.
