You can make a donation to our dedicated fund that supports investigative stories on the politics of science, in honor of our former board president Daniel S. Greenberg. Click here to donate to this fund.
The Daniel S. Greenberg Fund for Politics of Science Investigations supports our grants and editorial mentorship for investigative journalism that looks critically at the funding of science, political and corporate influences on science, and related issues.
The Daniel S. Greenberg Fund was launched in 2022. Greenberg served on the board of the Fund for Investigative Journalism for many years and was the board president in 1985 and 1986. He was editor of the News and Comment section of Science magazine, a leading research journal, from 1961 to 1971 before launching his own influential newsletter, Science & Government Report. He was the author of several books on science policy, including the classic, “Politics of Pure Science,” and he pioneered a rigorous, witty, often biting style of journalism that subjected science to the same investigative scrutiny as other interests and issues. His work and legacy are described in obituaries in the Washington Post, New York Times and Science.
The Daniel S. Greenberg Fund for Politics of Science Investigations is a registered trade name of the Fund for Investigative Journalism, and donations are tax-deductible.
