AZCIR's Report for America Fund

AZCIR partnered with Report for America to hire Shaena Montanari as our newsroom's investigative health reporter. RFA supports half of Shaena’s salary, challenging AZCIR to cover the rest through community donations. 

Will you help AZCIR raise $25,000 to cover a portion of Shaena’s salary, and to help offset reporting costs such as statewide travel and public records?
