Donor workshop: How to fund investigative journalism

On the occasion of this year's Global Investigative Journalism Conference, and the publication of How to Fund Investigative Journalism, the Rudolf Augstein Foundation, Journalism Funders Forum, Deutsche Welle Akademie and the Expert Group for Quality Journalism in the Federal Association of German Foundations have joined forces to offer a workshop for current and future funders of investigative journalism, which will take place on the pre-conference day, the 25th September.  

The interactive workshop will discuss these issues in small groups:

  • Furthering your aim as a funder by supporting investigative journalism (IJ) – can it be done without compromising the independence – and security – of IJ organisations? 
  • What expectations of sustainability should donors have of IJ organisations? 
  • Is supporting IJ media in developing solid business models the silver bullet for ensuring their longevity and impact on society? 
  • Is it time for greater diversity within the IJ field – in terms of approaches, funding, gender, race/ethnicity?

Please note: This is a closed event for funders. If you have received an invitation please make sure to register here as space is limited.
