Foundation for Financial Journalism


The Foundation for Financial Journalism launched in 2012 in Wilmington, N.C. as the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation with the goal of providing in-depth financial investigative reporting for the common good. After a name change in early 2020, the organization remains solidly committed to the same mission. We believe that investigative journalism is a critical tool for ensuring corporate accountability. In recent years many news organizations have struggled to operate with a diminished amount of resources; established papers and magazines have curtailed or eliminated investigative reporting projects. Scores of experienced business editors and reporters — well versed in the technicalities of accounting, finance and the broader capital markets — have left the field. This loss has taken a toll on business journalism, which serves as an important civic guardrail of consumer and shareholder protection.
