Content Science Issues Q1 2024 Donations to Fight Misinformation in Fraud

posted by Esther Goh

Atlanta, Georgia – Content Science directed donations for Q1 2024 toward trusted organizations combatting the misinformation that plays a role in consumer fraud in the United States and around the world.

Content Science gave money to organizations including but not limited to Consumer Reports and Pew Research because their missions and work help address mis/disinformation as people make buying decisions.

The Federal Trade Commission reports Americans lost $10 billion to fraud in 2023, up from $9 billion in 2022.

“Losing money to fraud and identity theft has increased from $3.5 billion in 2020 to $10 billion in 2023 in the U.S. That’s staggering,” notes Content Science President Colleen Jones. “I believe the proliferation of misinformation in that same time period is correlated.”

In the spirit of companies like Toms making a donation for every purchase, Content Science is contributing 10% of proceeds from these popular educational online products:

Content Science issues donations each quarter to nonprofits with initiatives aligned with Content Science’s purpose.

“I founded Content Science with the purpose of enabling worthy organizations to make content make a constructive difference in how people feel, decide, act, and live. If misinformation runs rampant online, people will not trust digital channels or content,” says Jones.
