Your contribution is appreciated.

We need your help. Twenty-five years after the fall of the Soviet Union, days when so much optimism reigned, all is not well.

Following decades of communist rule, the process of building open and well-functioning democracies is neither natural nor inevitable, it turns out. Indeed, the task is nearly impossible without a free, independent, and aggressive media possessing the skills and determination to shine a light on corruption and cronyism, dig into the issues, and hold leaders accountable.

That’s the reason for Transitions. For the past 15 years, our organization has dedicated itself to nurturing the development of a healthy and robust Fourth Estate in the former Soviet sphere. But to maintain our crucial ability to help reformers, we could use your assistance.

Your donation will directly support the publication of our respected flagship newssite, Transitions Online, and our training goals. 

So please, if you have a moment and can spare a few dollars or euros or rubles, we urge you to donate and support our efforts to bring the benefits of a free press to this crucial part of the world.

Thank you,

Jeremy Druker
Executive Director and Editor in Chief
