Round 2

Encino, Calif., October 15, 2014 — The Investigative News Network has announced eight winners of the second round of its INNovation Fund grants, for a total of $226,020. The fund was established with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to spur business innovation and experimentation in nonprofit newsrooms that are focused on audience engagement and long-term sustainability. “This second round of INNovation grant winners reflects our continued emphasis on business experimentation in the nonprofit and public media space that is both replicable and scalable in the future,” says Kevin Davis, CEO & Executive Director of the Investigative News Network.  “Whether its a speaker’s bureau, a film festival or a social network for content syndication, each of these new projects has the potential to generate impact and benefit for the entire nonprofit news sector.” The eight finalists were chosen from a pool of 48 proposals, each describing the project, the goals, projected results, and explanation of how the money would be used.
