The Independent Media Association doesn’t do ads and isn’t backed by any corporate giants, so we are not swimming in money. 


In order to fund our projects and help us accomplish our goal of reforming the media, we need your help. 

If you become a regular donor you become part of the cooperative, giving you democratic rights and making you part of the team working to change the media.

Donors are given exclusive access to a Telegram group, where they can engage with our partners and us, and debate any topics that may be of interest, as well as suggesting possible stories, campaigns or ideas.
