We’re here to fund and foster watchdog reporting in the DC region
Journalism is suffering worldwide. That’s especially true for local journalism and long-form, enterprise reporting — the kind of fact-based, investigative projects that can shed light on abuses of power, misspent government funds, political corruption, wrongful convictions or public programs gone awry – for example. SpotlightDC aims to help incubate important, high-impact journalism.
Our mission: raise charitable funds, put them in the hands of journalists pursuing worthwhile projects, provide guidance and promote their work for maximum impact.
