(Washington) – The Fund for Investigative Journalism (FIJ) is pleased to announce that the Nicholas B. Ottaway Foundation has renewed its support of FIJ’s grant-making program for a third year with a $30,000 donation.
The Nicholas B. Ottaway Foundation’s journalism program supports press freedom around the world and seeks to improve the quality of journalism through grants to American journalism schools and investigative reporting projects and websites. The Foundation also supports education, community arts, public health, and environmental projects.
The grant made to FIJ will underwrite freelance reporters writing for American media outlets on both domestic and foreign issues.
For more than forty years, FIJ has paid reporting expenses of reporters who have the ideas, sources, and know-how to produce groundbreaking investigative journalism but need resources to complete their projects.
One of the Fund for Investigative Journalism’s board members, David Ottaway, also serves on the board of the Nicholas B. Ottaway Foundation.
