Florida Center for Investigative Reporting
Florida Center for Investigative Reporting

The Florida Center for Investigative Reporting was founded in 2010 to investigate corruption, waste and injustice in partnership with traditional and emerging news media in Florida. In 2016, the organization refocused on three programs: 1) offering individual grants of $500 to $5,000 to journalists working on Florida stories; investigating Islamophobia and the intersection of national security and civil liberties in partnership with national media; and acting as a fiscal sponsor for journalism organizations and individual journalists to receive funding that requires a 501(c)(3) umbrella. Revenue: Grants, individual contributions, data analysis.
