The Investigative Journalism Fund


The Jewish Week Investigative Journalism Fund seeks to tell the truth about the community, to the community, for the community. Established in 2012 to fill a gap in enterprise reporting, the fund commissions a range of articles on important local, national and international issues in Jewish life. We believe that accountability and transparency are at the roots of progress. An editorial committee of The Jewish Week board of directors and its editors reviews proposals, awards grants and commissions articles. The pieces are published in The Jewish Week’s print and online editions.
