Program on Independent Journalism
The Open Society Program on Independent Journalism supports journalism that verifies, exposes, and explains reality while inspiring the kind of self-reflection and critical thinking that open society requires.
We support efforts to build a free and safe environment for journalism. We also help investigative journalism collectives network across borders, exchange expertise, and refine methods and tools for exposing abuses of power, corporate wrongdoing, and corruption that undermine democratic values and institutions.
We support independent and open journalism, especially where trustworthy information is scarce. We fund startups seeking to enter and enrich the public debate, organizations determined to grow and innovate, and media entrepreneurs with new ideas for strengthening and defending independent journalism all over the world.
