Why We Invested
Investigative journalism plays a crucial role in our democracy by holding the powerful accountable and informing the public. The Membership Puzzle Project works with investigative reporting projects and local newsrooms to rebuild the social contract between communities and newsrooms. In partnership with First Look Media, this grant will enable New York University to create an open laboratory to tackle specific problems and develop scalable solutions for developing strong membership programs, and share those lessons with newsrooms across the United States.
