A note from Colleen McElligott, Chief Advancement Officer

By Colleen McElligott | January 3, 2022

Dear Bulletin Community, 

Your steadfast and thoughtful support ensures that our staff, writers, and expert contributors continue to provide the vital coverage you expect on critical issues of man-made risk.

With your support this past year, the Bulletin: 

  • Provided fact-based coverage of existential threats. Bulletin stories are regularly cited, referenced, and directly quoted in media outlets around the world. “The origin of COVID: Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?” by Nicholas Wade attracted 1.6 million readers and was cited in major media outlets, helping to move global conversations about the origins of the virus.
  • Launched the inaugural class of Editorial Fellows. The Editorial Fellows program is designed to attract, support, and compensate a cohort of diverse columnists committed to publishing regularly on nuclear risk, climate change, and disruptive technologies. The 2021/22 Editorial Fellows are an impressive list of thinkers. Meet them here.  
  • Expanded our virtual interactive events. Our monthly, free-of-charge interactive experiences attracted 4,000+ international participants in support of global advocacy and action.  See our upcoming events.
  • Published “Now, Then, and the Future: The Bulletin Turns 75.” This 365-page anniversary book gathers some of the best writing published by the Bulletin since its founding in 1945 by Manhattan Project scientists, plus a foreword from noted theoretical linguist and author Noam Chomsky. 

Thank you again for your continued support. Only together can we do what is necessary to turn back the hands of the Doomsday Clock.
