First, publicly available data on cold cases will always be free to access. This is true and will always be true. We'll never gate this content because the more people who see it, the better.
Second, when you buy a membership to Uncovered, you're supporting a Public Benefit Corporation and helping us pay for technology, salaries for our employees to do case research and build this technology. You're also helping us make partnerships with families, law enforcement, and Citizen Detectives who want to solve these cases.
However, if you want to be a part of what we're doing, but the cost is prohibitive, reach out and let us know. We don't want money to be a reason you don't work with us.
One thing we often hear from our users and partners when we talk about Uncovered is, “Why doesn't this exist already?” We agree! However, one of the biggest obstacles to gathering and visualizing all information about unsolved cases of the missing and murdered is funding. Building a community is serious work, and we want to ensure that everyone is invested.
We're here to find answers, and while some great work does happen on other platforms—it's also interrupted by family vacay pics, MLM offers, or a less than welcoming offer to interact unless you've been there from the jump. We don't believe this is a community for everyone, but for those interested in working alongside others committed to using their collective impact to make a difference in this space, welcome to Uncovered!
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by the government and nonprofits alone, but as a Public Benefit Corporation, Uncovered ensures that our work is reflective of the community that we serve and our collective impact.
As a B Corp, we work toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. This infusion in the true crime community will ensure we lead with empathy and build the best product and the most engaged community. To do this, we want to be able to recruit, maintain, and pay the best people and use groundbreaking technologies in this space.
By harnessing the power of business, as a B Corp Uncovered will use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for our employees, the community, and the environment. You can learn more here.
