Type Investigations, formerly The Investigative Fund, incubates high-impact investigative reporting that holds the powerful accountable. We bring underreported stories to light, cultivate diverse journalistic talent, and create a home for independent journalism that serves the public.
We work with independent investigative reporters to produce deeply reported journalism that we publish in partnership with a wide variety of print, broadcast and digital media outlets — allowing us to bring investigative reporting to diverse audiences. Our editors provide diverse freelance reporters with expert editorial guidance, a team of researchers, and funds to cover their travel, time and other reporting costs. We are committed to reporting from the ground level, finding stories and sources among the communities most affected by wrongdoing.
Type Investigations covers the most critical issues of our time: immigration, labor, environment, corporate and government malfeasance, and civil and human rights.
