The Guardian has a 200-year commitment to exceptional reporting and investigative journalism. Its award-winning original coverage, from national security phone hacking to the Panama Papers, has consistently fought to hold power accountable and to make the world a better, fairer place. Based in the U.K., the Guardian began operating in the U.S. in 2011, bringing high-quality independent journalism and a global perspective to the most pressing challenges facing the country. Adapting to numerous changes in the media landscape throughout its 200-year, its most recent initiative is TheGuardian.org, a new 501(c)3 nonprofit that will be dedicated to making philanthropic partnerships a reliable form of support for independent commercial journalism. Pursuing donors who recognize and appreciate the importance of preserving independent press that cutting-edge investigative reporting relies on, The Guardian seeks to provide a new funding model for all media organizations interested in advancing the public good. Additionally, the philanthropic partnerships The Guardian pursues ensures that all of its content is easily accessible, not behind a paywall, and available to all that are interested in the most pressing current events. As a new enterprise, the Director of Philanthropy would have to be bold, enterprising, and effective. DRand The Guardian quickly realized that Emily could be trusted with such responsibilities. Serving in a variety of development roles within Mother Jones, Emily possessed a proven ability to connect donors with editorial priorities. Before moving into development, she served as the Executive Director and Co-founder of WEdia, a start-up nonprofit that connected volunteer filmmakers and journalists with nonprofits around the world in order to spread visibility and awareness for critical issues. Emily received her J.D. from the Vermont Law School and her B.A. from the College of Charleston. DRwas pleased to work with Emily and the Guardian and is honored to have played a part in their cutting-edge journalistic endeavors."
