JWMG Investigative Journalism Fund logo  

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 issues in Jewish life. We believe passionately that accountability and transparency are the roots of progress.

The Jewish Week was born in the late 1960s as a small tabloid produced out of an office outfitted with typewriters and a ticker-tape machine. Today, that newspaper has grown in size and sophistication to become The Jewish Week Media Group, reaching more than 55,000 households each week and over 150,000 online visitors each month. With three regional editions serving New York City, Westchester County and Long Island, we have expanded to better serve, inform and inspire our increasingly diverse Jewish community.

Please help support the cost of research for freelance and staff journalists to produce in-depth reports and investigations, as well as explanatory pieces, features or essays that shed light on complex issues. 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.
