The Board of Directors of the Fund for Investigative Journalism has awarded a $5,000 grant to the Montana Center for Investigative Reporting to pursue a project on Montana’s healthcare industry. We are excited to get started and hope to have this project published in 2015. Content will be available for syndication for free through creative commons license. Our goal is to have content available for broadcast, radio, print and online.
Grants from FIJ provide the resources necessary to travel, interview sources, and research documentary evidence. The Fund’s grant-making program is made possible by support from the Park Foundation, the Gannett Foundation, the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation, and generous donations from family foundations and individuals.
The Fund for Investigative Journalism is an independent, non-profit organization that has supported hundreds of public service reporting projects since 1969, when it provided funding for Seymour Hersh to investigate the massacre of Vietnamese civilians by American soldiers in My Lai. His stories won the Pulitzer Prize.
