„Independent journalism requires courage. And readers' support.”
Jarosław Kurski, first deputy of the editor-in-chief of Gazeta Wyborcza
"Gazeta Wyborcza initiates social debates and changes. For journalists from Central and Eastern Europe, it is a symbol of free, democratic and solidary Poland and bold journalism, independent of the weather. The foundation is supported by Gazeta Wyborcza."
Grzegorz Piechota, Member of the Foundation Council
We established the Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation to promote media freedom and integrity. We want to develop independent journalism through broadly understood educational and cultural activities. Projects realised within the Foundation are nationwide and international, which is achieved in collaboration with the biggest media in Europe.
In 2022 the Foundation was awarded the Golden Pen of Freedom, the annual press freedom award of the World Association of News Publishers (WAN-IFRA).
