Non-profit journalism

Non-profit journalism (abbreviated as NPJ, also known as a not-for-profit journalism or think tank journalism)[1][2][3] is the practice of grants to pay for operational expenses.

Non-profit journalism history

The recent emergence of non-profit journalism may lead some to believe that this is a new trend[4][5] in a struggling industry. However, journalism non-profits have been operating since the beginning of the newspaper age. In 1846,[6] five New York newspapers united[7] to share incoming reports from the Mexican-American War. That experiment in journalism became the Associated Press, which to this day is still a non-profit cooperative.[8]

Center for Public Integrity (CPI), founded in 1989 by Charles Lewis, a former producer for ABC News and CBS News. CPI's international arm, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), was founded in 1997. ICIJ works through a global network of 175 investigative reporters in more than 60 countries.

More recently, non-profit journalism organizations such as Investigative News Network. In April 2010 a London based not-for-profit initiative was launched under the name Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
