We are the philanthropic arm of Thomson Reuters, the world’s biggest news and information provider. We are registered as an independent charity both in the UK and in the USA.
A corporate foundation: We are geared to action. We leverage the know-how, reach and reputation of Thomson Reuters to run free programmes that promote the highest standards in journalism and spread excellence in the practice of legal pro bono worldwide. We act as a source of unbiased thought leadership in areas including slavery and human trafficking, women’s rights and climate and resilience.
A trusted connector: As the philanthropic arm of Thomson Reuters, we are uniquely placed to engage businesses, governments, thought leaders and civil society, and forge strategic partnerships to tackle some of the world’s most pressing socio-economic issues. Our partners trust our expertise, values, and ability to deliver.
An impact multiplier: We do not give grants; we receive them to run free programmes and services that better equip people and organisations to drive positive change around the world. Our extensive reach and unique network allow us to amplify the impact of these grants given to us by individuals, corporations, and foundations. Our goal is to achieve impact at scale.
TRUSTLAW: FREE LEGAL ASSISTANCE: Through TrustLaw, we connect top law firms with NGOs and social enterprises in need of free legal assistance in 175 countries.
TRUSTCONFERENCE: We take action to put the rule of law behind women’s rights and fight slavery.
UNDER-REPORTED STORIES: We cover the world’s under-reported stories that are often overlooked by the mainstream media.
MEDIA DEVELOPMENT & TRAINING: We create independent news platforms and run mentoring programmes for journalists around the world.
REUTERS INSTITUTE FOR THE STUDY OF JOURNALISM: We fund the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford, a research centre for comparative journalism.
