Frontline Journalism FundThe FRONTLINE Journalism Fund was established by a group of philanthropists committed to magnifying the reach and impact of enterprise reporting in our country. A gift to the FRONTLINE Journalism Fund supports the exceptional level of investigative journalism that has been the hallmark of FRONTLINE for over 27 years. As PBS’s flagship public affairs series, FRONTLINE’s experienced and award-winning producers never shy away from tough, controversial issues. FRONTLINE is committed to providing journalists with the time and resources required to delve deeply into complex subjects and develop the stories that enliven and enrich public dialogue, spark national conversations, and spur change and reform.

David Fanning"A constant and difficult challenge for FRONTLINE is developing the pipeline of stories that becomes the individual films. Like any enterprise, it requires that we research and investigate stories that show promise, not knowing where they may lead us. What the FRONTLINE Journalism Fund gives us is the venture capital to develop those story ideas — to send our journalists into the field and dig into the story behind the headlines. That's what distinguishes FRONTLINE — a willingness to take the time to tell a story with complexity and depth. It begins with those first stages of enquiry, and that's where the FRONTLINE Journalism Fund has proved invaluable, helping us sustain our commitment to investigative and enterprise reporting."

-David Fanning, FRONTLINE Executive Producer
