What is our mission and how to support us

The Pod črto project (in Eng., ‘The Bottom Line’) is Slovenian independent and non-profit media outlet focusing on investigative reporting, data journalism and in-depth stories. We founded Pod črto in September 2014. The team behind the project believes in the power of investigative stories and the importance of journalism in the public interest.

We are covering a broad spectrum of topics including economic development and entrepreneurship, social and environmental issues. Our mission is to comprehensively explain the pressing issues in our society, as well as finding the ways to address and resolve them.

(Changes for the better.)

Samples of our work:

In March 2015 the Nieman Foundation from Harvard University included Pod črto in the Nieman Reports as the only media for investigative journalism in Slovenia. In May 2015 Shuttleworth Foundation supported our work with their Flash Grant.

It is in accordance with out philosophy that we do not charge the users for access to our content. Our work is therefore funded with donations from our readers, supporters and grants. Consider supporting our work with donation:
