Help support top investigative journalism

A handful of experienced investigative hacks, from those who exposed MP's expenses to those who exposed corruption in sport, have launched a new fund to help support independent funded high-quality investigative journalism. They include the likes of Nick Davies, writer of the book Flat Earth News, the star of the expenses revelations, Freedom of Information Campaigner Heather Brooke, (offering tips in video above) and Martin Bright, who has worked as political editor of the News Statesman, Home Affairs Editor of The Observer, and reported for the BBC world service and Channel 4's Dispatches programme. In 2006 he won the Magazine Journalism Award for exclusive of the year for his work on the rendition of terror suspects. The Brief
Their mission brief is this: "The newly-formed Foundation for Investigative Reporting is launching a campaign to help secure the future of public interest reporting in the UK. We are setting up a fund that will support the kind of risky, challenging reporting for which there is a crying demand  — and as an experiment to seek out new ways to support this vital work."
They add: "We urgently need to hear from you with your thoughts, pledges of any form of support, or the sort of big idea or information about something you believe should be investigated  — and isn't."
