How to Fund Your Investigation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"There were never any good old days," one famous reporter likes to say. "Investigative journalism has always been a struggle." It's true -- you probably won't get rich by investigating powerful interests. Despite this, there are important ways to support investigative reporting. Print media and television are still growing in much of developing Asia, and there are good models for making watchdog journalism a popular franchise among audiences. There are exciting new models, too: nonprofit news groups, online startups, work with universities and NGOs, and grants and fellowships for freelancers. Come hear a professional fundraiser who has raised millions of dollars for media nonprofits, a foundation program director, and innovative journalists from Nepal and Malaysia talk about how to make investigative reporting both sustainable and successful.
