Impact

One reporter, given proper support to dig deep and keep digging, can change the world. We’ve shown that over and over again throughout the last 51 years. With grants and other support from the Fund for Investigative Journalism, investigative journalists uncover wrongdoing, expose injustice, deepen public understanding of complex issues and spark reform. We support unbiased, nonpartisan journalism that has an impact. Below are just a few recent examples of how stories we support have sparked change.
