ScoopCitizen is proudly supported by the Scoop Foundation For Public Interest Journalism

Existing Scoop Foundation supporters are now ScoopCitizen Members (Scoop Citizens) 

By donating to support ScoopCitizen you will receive regular Citizen News Alerts, and can participate in in-depth “Citizen journalism” projects by The Dig and Scoop through the Citizen Community Forum. The Scoop foundation owns Scoop Publishing Limited which runs Scoop.co.nz and TheDig.nz. Scoop offers members a number of newsletters relevant to citizens, activists and organisations. Existing Scoop Foundation members will still need to register with the ScoopCitizen / NextElection service to engage via that technology.  Sustainable financial support of ScoopCitizen will help to keep these vital and participatory media services running and develop this service.

We are asking all existing or new supporters to make regular or one-off contributions if they are able.
