Exposing Institutional Abuses

The nonpartisan, nonprofit Center for Public Integrity—which won Pulitzer Prizes in 2014 and 2017—produces investigative reports for broadcast, print, and online media. Its mission is to reveal abuses of power and corruption by public and private institutions.

Founded in 1989, the Center is one of the oldest and largest organizations of its kind in the U.S. It covers such topics as money and politics, the environment, healthcare reform, national security, and state government transparency. In addition to the Pulitzer Prizes, the Center has won more than 50 major journalism awards, including the George Polk Award and honors from Investigative Reporters and Editors, the Online News Association, the Overseas Press Club, the Society of Environmental Journalists, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
