Crowdfunding Campaign Update: Meet Our First Fellow

RosemaryOur crowdfunding campaign is now 55% funded, all because of you — 66 amazing contributors in 19 countries. Thanks so much for your support. Here’s a look at what your generosity is making possible:

Meet our first fellow! Rosemary Nwaebuni is an investigative reporter with the POINTER newspaper in Delta State, Nigeria, an area known for its big oil production and widespread corruption. There’s no way she could have attended workshops at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference without your support.

“Governance is replete with corrupt officials who on a daily basis, perfect ways to subvert and undermine the collective will of the people to advance their selfish end,” she says. “It gives me great joy to go right into their closets to expose and bring them to justice for the ultimate good of society.”

Check out Corruption Paid for in Lives in Nigeria’s Delta State, her investigation into the sorry state of health care in the region.

Help us send more reporters like Rosemary to the GIJC, where they’ll get state-of-the-art training in following documents, data, dirty money, and more. We still need your support, so please share our campaign with friends, family, and colleagues. And thanks again!

You did it! You all funded the first investigative reporting fellowship

Huge thanks to all our contributors of our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. These first days have been intensely busy but rewarding, and we’re happy to say that the campaign is rolling. The global community of investigative journalists – and their supporters worldwide – have had an awesome response. So, we can officially announce that you all have funded the campaign’s first investigative reporting fellowship! But this is only the beginning, and we really need your help to bring more promising journalists.

Crowdfunding Campaign Launches for GIJC13

Today GIJN launches a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. And we need your help. We’re raising funds to bring promising journalists from developing and transitioning countries to the Global Investigative Journalism Conference this October, where they’ll get training in state-of-the-art investigative reporting, data journalism, and cross-border collaboration. This is a great way to help fight corruption and stand up for accountability and transparency around the world. You can read more about it on Indiegogo. And check out our campaign video, featuring investigative reporters on the front lines in Kenya, Macedonia, Pakistan, and Tunisia.
