The Workshop needs your help

Posted: Dec. 15, 2011 | Tags: Workshop news

For nearly three years, the Investigative Reporting Workshop has been bringing you outstanding coverage of key issues. We’ve reported on the banking crisis, stimulus funding for green energy projects, lobbying by the nuclear power industry, among other stories. Our partnership with FRONTLINE has produced acclaimed documentaries on airline safety and immigration detention. Our ongoing What Went Wrong project is putting a spotlight on the systemic  issues facing the American economy, providing a context for the current debates in Washington and the motivation of the people participating in the nationwide Occupy movement. Executive Editor Charles Lewis has written extensively about the emerging, nonprofit ecosystem that is becoming a bulwark of investigative journalism. With our Exemption 10 blog we have put a spotlight on continuing problems with the administration of the federal Freedom of Information Act. And we are helping to educate a new generation of investigative journalists. We have used dozens of American University students to help research and produce our stories, graphics and documentaries. Last summer, we had interns from five other universities, including Arizona State and the University of Missouri.

We are grateful for the support of many of the nation’s leading foundations. But we also would like to ask our audience — you — to consider helping us financially, as well, with any size gift you can afford. You can contribute online by clicking the Donate Now button.
