Washington – The Fund for Investigative Journalism is pleased to announce that The Reva and David Logan Foundation has awarded $85,000 to support the Fund’s grant-making program for independent journalists around the world.
This is the third year that the Fund has received a grant from The Reva and David Logan Foundation, and represents an increased level of funding. The additional funds will be used to offer professional development opportunities to grantees of the Fund.
The Reva and David Logan Foundation has a history of supporting high-impact investigative journalism organizations, including The Centre for Investigative Journalism in London, The Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California – Berkeley, and Reveal Radio – produced by The Center for Investigative Reporting in Berkeley.
The Foundation also sponsors the annual Logan Symposium on Investigative Reporting at the University of California – Berkeley.
The Fund for Investigative Journalism is an independent, nonprofit organization that has supported hundreds of public service reporting projects since 1969, when it provided travel expenses for Seymour Hersh to investigate the massacre of civilians by American soldiers in My Lai, Vietnam.
The Fund pays expenses and small stipends for independent reporters who have the ideas, sources, and know-how to produce groundbreaking investigative journalism, but need resources to get the work done.
The Fund makes grants three to four times a year, typically about $5,000. The next deadline for applications is September 21, 2015.
The Fund relies on the support of individuals and foundations. Donations can be made online, www.fij.org, or by mail to the Fund for Investigative Journalism, 529 14th Street, NW, 13th floor, Washington DC 20045.
