By now you’ve probably received a dozen or more emails about #GivingTuesday. I would be remiss to say that this note is something uniquely different, but I’d like to take a second to describe how the scope of work being serviced through The Sparrow Project has changed and can benefit from sustaining donations from people like you.
In 2016 The Sparrow Project stopped accepting paying clients and started routing requests for paid work through our friends at Balestra Media. We began emphasizing quality over frequency and this calculous provided a handful of amazing activists working on shoestring budgets (or no budgets at all) with access to top-tier media coverage, digital audience building, and blooming political clout.
This past year The Sparrow Project; partnered with The Washington Post to break Property of the People’s FOIA scoop outlining the Trump administration’s possible violations of the domestic emoluments clause; produced video content and serviced media advisories for a Long Island activist challenging congressman Peter King; and developed a media partnership between Property of the People and ProPublica to publish a searchable online database of White House visitor records previously withheld by president Trump.
Since 2016, The Sparrow Project has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in services to grassroots activists for free. I want to see this work continue. Please consider becoming a patron of The Sparrow Project and help us expand our scope even further.
All the best,
