Center for Investigative Reporting

The Center for Investigative Reporting engages the public through investigative journalism and groundbreaking storytelling in order to spark action, improve lives, and protect our democracy.


Investigative journalism provides vital accountability over our leaders and institutions and serves as a check and balance on power. The Center for Investigative Reporting is supporting long-term investigative reporting collaborations in communities across the United States through their Reveal Local Labs initiative. This initiative builds partnerships across platforms and local institutions, including newspapers, radio, television and ethnic media, as well as key community-based institutions that can deepen the reach and impact of deeply reported investigative projects.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the Reveal Local Labs at the Center for Investigative Reporting to ensure we have a robust fourth estate at the local and national level.
