The Badger Project is a nonpartisan, citizen-supported journalism nonprofit in Wisconsin that investigates government, politics and related matters.

With the decline of local newspapers across the state, this project aims to try and fill at least a small portion of that gap.

Elected officials work for the people and do the people’s business. They don’t get to do it in secret.

The Badger Project is a member of the Local Independent Online News Publishers, and a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News.

We partner with local newspapers and news organizations in Wisconsin to publish our stories and get our work to the people it affects most.

The Badger Project’s work has appeared in more than 70 news outlets across the state and beyond:
