About us

Freedom of expression, democracy, tolerance, human rights and equality… are parts of the DNA code of Gazeta Wyborcza.

For 30 years we have engaged in the most important social topics in the spirit of citizen journalism. And we will continue to do that. We have clearly learned a lot about the importance of the free media recently. Wishing to support the development of independent journalism and reliable media coverage, we established the Gazeta Wyborcza Foundation.

It is our intention to promote social initiatives and citizen projects along with all activities aimed at broadening freedom of the media, upgrading the quality of journalism, developing education and critical thinking.

Our aim is all-Polish and international cultural and educational activity in the scope of journalism, art and culture, as well as the integration of the scientific, journalist, arts and business communities around the most important topics of the modern world – peace, freedom, democracy and civil rights.
