Puffin Foundation: Investigative Journalism

The Puffin Foundation has embarked on a major commitment to quality educational journalism.  The Foundation's First Amendment Fund supports the work of a variety of publications and independent journalists.

The Puffin Foundation Ltd. in cooperation with The Nation Institute, has created a long-running program for new writing Fellows. Underwritten by the Puffin Foundation, the Fellows focus on a wide variety of investigative reporting projects. The Foundation also supports The Nation Institute's Investigative Fund which produces in-depth journalism for a variety of publications including the Nation Magazine.  Puffin also supports the Magazine's StudentNation initiative, which provides a unique space to young journalists and activist-writers to reflect on their own issues, campaigns, struggles, and victories.

Additional support for Investigative Journalism includes: Democracy Now to help expand their radio, cable and on-line audiences; Mother Jones to help inform the public about the corrosive influence of corporate money on our democracy and creation of a special fellowship for investigative reporting;  The American Prospect, for creation of a Puffin/Prospect Writing Fellow focusing on money, politics and special interest lobbying; The Washington Spectator; The Economic Hardship Reporting Project, headed by Barbara Ehrenreich which will report on common sense solutions to poverty in America; Dissent; and investigative reporter Greg Palast for his comprehensive work on the corruption of our electoral democracy, and the dark world of the financial and oil industries.  Puffin is also proud to have created a major endowment for In These Times with the purchase of their own building and through our ongoing support of their coverage of a wide array of informative topics.
