Flashlight is the first giving circle to fund journalism. We're news innovators: we’re journalists and business folks with experience across the Atlantic, Google, nonprofit, journalism tech, and civic tech. We pool money to give grants to investigative journalists, because their work makes our society stronger. Investigative journalism captures public attention, illuminates important issues, and holds power to account. But it’s costly, time-intensive, and today’s news business models aren’t equipped to support it. As a result, many important stories are never told. In a giving circle, members give to a common pool and then collectively decide where to donate the funds. At Flashlight, we give a grant to an investigative journalist once per quarter.Something looks off?
