The Current is a non-profit news organization that provides original, in-depth watchdog journalism for Savannah and Coastal Georgia. It is an independent non-partisan organization whose professional journalists work to increase awareness and accountability through solutions-oriented reporting and personal stories that affect all our communities. It is funded solely by donations from its supporters and readers.

The organization is overseen by Grey Matters Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit with an independent board. See members here.

Donors and members subscribe to The Current’s belief that promoting greater civic engagement and informed discourse is a direct route to a better and more productive Georgia. They play no role in guiding the journalism produced by The Current.
