US-China Today Ignite Fundraiser

US-China Today is an online student-driven publication of the USC US-China Institute that publishes deeply-reported, undercovered stories in the US-China relationship. We have served hundreds of students interested in reporting on the US-China relationship in our 11 years as a publication. We are fundraising to upgrade our website, host cultural exchanges, and expand our magazine programming. By donating, you will help broaden the impact of our activities, which include conducting bilingual reporting on global issues, and training students from a variety of backgrounds and majors to conduct independent journalistic projects. 


Why Donate?

US-China Today has never collected dues to make the publication accessible to all. As our organization has grown, so has our financial need. With the $5,000 raised from this campaign we hope to:

  • Update our website: Make critical upgrades to our aging website so that our top-notch reporting might be reflected in the design and quality of our website.

  • Cultural exchanges: Raise money for transportation, entry fees, and refreshments for upcoming cultural exchanges. Our most recent event featured a Lunar New Year dim sum brunch and a tour of the USC Pacific-Asia Museum.

  • Magazine programming: Travel stipends to bring prominent US-China speakers to campus. Our "Reporting on China" panel brought former L.A. Times Beijing bureau chief Julie Makinen to USC.

Who We Are

US-China Today is made up of more than 25 students representing students across every major interested in reporting on issues of contemporary China. We have been first to break major stories from transgender rights and RV tourism before mainstream media organizations. Our students come from a diversity of backgrounds including China, Southeast Asia, Central Europe, and across the United States.
