Help support Croakey

Croakey is a not-for-profit, social journalism in health initiative. Croakey.org publishes articles that: are in the public interest and give voice to those who may not otherwise be heard; focus on under-served matters such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health and health equity more broadly, health in all policies and the social determinants of health; and that contribute to a more informed policy, practice and community environment. Read more in our strategic plan.

We are a social enterprise; we rely on our readers and social media followers to support us – and you can support our work in many ways.

A heartfelt thank-you to all of our generous sponsors, funders and individuals who make our work possible.

As part of a commitment to editorial independence, all funders have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding stating they shall have no say over Croakey’s editorial direction or content. Croakey is grateful that the donors treat this agreement with respect.

How you can help

Donations

We are working very hard to ensure Croakey Health Media becomes sustainable into the future. Every donation helps! No amount is too small to make a difference. You can choose to make a one-off donation or become a regular donor. Please donate here.

Please also consider registering at our Patreon account that supports public interest journalism on the climate crisis and health – it’s an easy way to support us through regular donations. Every dollar helps. See our climate and health coverage.

Croakey Weekly Bulletin

Although you can always access Croakey’s articles for free, a convenient way to stay up to date is with our weekly emailed summary of Croakey articles. It is only $80 per year (including GST).  We also offer special rates for bulk deals – for example, for organisations or students. Subscribe here.

Advertise with Croakey

By advertising with Croakey, you or your organisation can reach our informed, influential audience.

Advertising is available:

  • On our website (average 35,000 page views per month)
  • In our weekly email news bulletin (reaching hundreds of leading health

If you would like to advertise with Croakey, please contact us at: info@croakey.org.

Leave a legacy

You may wish to consider leaving a bequest to Croakey Health Media, to help safeguard the roles of health-focused public interest journalism into the future. Find out more about the options here.

Share our news

To achieve our vision – a vigorous and sustainable public interest journalism sector contributing to the health and wellbeing of people, families, communities, policies, societies and the environment – we rely on our readers and social media followers to help share our news. Please share Croakey articles on all your socials.

Join one of our annual Funding Consortia

“The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of robust, independent public interest journalism. We are grateful to members of the Croakey Health Media funding consortium for recognising the importance of public interest journalism for public health and public policy.”

Dr Melissa Sweet, Editor-in-Chief, Croakey Health Media

The funding consortia helps to pay the Croakey News team. We would not be able to operate without our editorial team, who commission, edit and publish articles and also support special projects.

You can find a list of the members of our Funding Consortia here.

If you would like to be part of one of the Consortia, please contact us at: laurell@croakey.org.

Public Interest Journalism

Public interest journalism is in crisis in Australia with alarming implications for individual, community, societal and planetary health. It has a vital role in scrutinising and holding to account governments, industries and other powerful interests that shape health. Just think of the advances in public health from tobacco control to the regulation of environmental hazards such as asbestos. Public interest journalism is also important for research and knowledge translation and improving policy.

We are seeking funds to conduct public interest journalism investigations and reporting. You can support our public interest journalism in two ways:

  • Making donations specifically for this purpose. Every dollar helps!
  • Funding Consortium members demonstrate their commitment to supporting public interest journalism through our funding packages.

It is essential, however, to stress the editorial independence of Croakey. Individuals and organisations supporting the public interest journalism funding pool do not have control of how Croakey spends the funds or the content of the related works of journalism.

Croakey Conference News Service

You can also support our journalism by enlisting the Croakey Conference News Service, which provides skilled, editorially independent multimedia reporting of conferences and other events that are likely to be of interest or use to Croakey readers. The service is funded by conference organisers or other third parties, but editorial responsibility rests with the Croakey team.

This reporting news service includes multi-media cover:

  • Live tweeting
  • Online news reports, published before, during and after the conference or event
  • Podcasts Follow-up interactive e-publications compiling all coverage

You will find a detailed summary of our past conferences here.

Train a new journalist

One of Croakey’s mandates is to train up the next generation of health journalists, at a time when there is diminishing capacity in mainstream media newsrooms to provide this training. We are seeking funders for tailored mentorships available to students in journalism or other fields, and early career practitioners in journalism, health or related fields.

The program is tailored to the needs of specific applicants, and costed accordingly. If you would like to support this program, please contact us at: laurell@croakey.org


Use Croakey Professional Services

Croakey provides a range of professional services, including workshops on writing, social media, research translation and advocacy. You will find more details here: https://www.croakey.org/services/.

Workshops on writing, social media, research translation and advocacy.

Sponsored articles

We have a limited number of opportunities to publish sponsored articles at Croakey.org, from organisations that align with Croakey’s mission. These are clearly marked as sponsored content, and distinguished from our editorial content. The articles may be written by Croakey’s experienced team of journalists and editors or submitted by the sponsoring organisation.

See: https://www.croakey.org/category/croakey-professional-services/acsqhc-series/

We are working very hard to ensure Croakey Health Media becomes sustainable into the future. Every donation helps! No amount is too small to make a difference. You can choose to make a one-off donation or become a regular donor. Please donate here.

We often crowdfund to support specific journalistic projects. For example, our #JustJustice, #WonkyHealth and #CripCroakey projects. We welcome applications for individuals and organisations who would like to collaborate with us on crowdfunded projects or other special projects.

Donations

Please also consider registering at our Patreon account that supports public interest journalism on the climate crisis and health – it’s an easy way to support us through regular donations. Every dollar helps. See our climate and health coverage.


Public interest journalism is in crisis in Australia with alarming implications for individual, community, societal and planetary health. It has a vital role in scrutinising and holding to account governments, industries and other powerful interests that shape health. Just think of the advances in public health from tobacco control to the regulation of environmental hazards such as asbestos. Public interest journalism is also important for research and knowledge translation and improving policy.

We are seeking funds to conduct public interest journalism investigations and reporting. You can support our public interest journalism in two ways:

  • Making donations specifically for this purpose. Every dollar helps!
  • Funding Consortium members demonstrate their commitment to supporting public interest journalism through our funding packages.

It is essential, however, to stress the editorial independence of Croakey. Individuals and organisations supporting the public interest journalism funding pool do not have control of how Croakey spends the funds or the content of the related works of journalism.

You can also support our journalism by enlisting the Croakey Conference News Service, which provides skilled, editorially independent multimedia reporting of conferences and other events that are likely to be of interest or use to Croakey readers. The service is funded by conference organisers or other third parties, but editorial responsibility rests with the Croakey team.

This reporting news service includes multi-media cover:

  • Live tweeting
  • Online news reports, published before, during and after the conference or event
  • Podcasts Follow-up interactive e-publications compiling all coverage

You will find a detailed summary of our past conferences here.

Croakey provides a range of professional services, including workshops on writing, social media, research translation and advocacy. You will find more details here: https://www.croakey.org/services/.

Workshops on writing, social media, research translation and advocacy.

Sponsored articles

We have a limited number of opportunities to publish sponsored articles at Croakey.org, from organisations that align with Croakey’s mission. These are clearly marked as sponsored content, and distinguished from our editorial content. The articles may be written by Croakey’s experienced team of journalists and editors or submitted by the sponsoring organisation.

Train a new journalist

One of Croakey’s mandates is to train up the next generation of health journalists, at a time when there is diminishing capacity in mainstream media newsrooms to provide this training. We are seeking funders for tailored mentorships available to students in journalism or other fields, and early career practitioners in journalism, health or related fields.

The program is tailored to the needs of specific applicants, and costed accordingly. If you would like to support this program, please contact us at: laurell@croakey.org

“The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of robust, independent public interest journalism. We are grateful to members of the Croakey Health Media funding consortium for recognising the importance of public interest journalism for public health and public policy.”

Dr Melissa Sweet, Editor-in-Chief, Croakey Health Media

The funding consortia helps to pay the Croakey News team. We would not be able to operate without our editorial team, who commission, edit and publish articles and also support special projects.

You can find a list of the members of our Funding Consortia here.

If you would like to be part of one of the Consortia, please contact us at: laurell@croakey.org.

You may wish to consider leaving a bequest to Croakey Health Media, to help safeguard the roles of health-focused public interest journalism into the future. Find out more about the options here.

To achieve our vision – a vigorous and sustainable public interest journalism sector contributing to the health and wellbeing of people, families, communities, policies, societies and the environment – we rely on our readers and social media followers to help share our news. Please share Croakey articles on all your socials.

What people say about Croakey

It was great to be able to collaborate with the Croakey team for the COVID-19 CaLD Community Think Tank. The event was aimed at hearing from those working in multicultural and community organisations about the challenges they have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic but to also capture lessons learnt and strategies that have enhanced engagement and to share those lessons. By working with Cate and the Croakey team we were able to capture those insights and to disseminate them in a timely way which is critical during a pandemic. The resulting article captured all of the key messages in a format that was relevant and tailored to the relevant audiences. The team were easy to connect and work with and I would certainly look to repeat the partnership again.
