FairWarning, the Los Angeles-based investigative news organization that focuses on issues of public safety and health, government and business, has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the Charles Evans Foundation. “The Evans Foundation has been a fantastic supporter of our efforts to produce strong, public interest journalism,” said Myron Levin, executive director of FairWarning in a press release earlier this week. “They have come through for us once again, for which we are deeply grateful.”
Since FairWarning’s launch in March, 2010, its reports and commentaries have appeared in more than 35 news outlets across the U.S., including the San Francisco Chronicle, The Oregonian, The Kansas City Star, Mother Jones, the Orange County Register, the Houston Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News. The Evans Foundation has supported a wide range of causes, ranging from fire safety and public health to projects to assist the disadvantaged. FairWarning has also received support from the Ethics & Excellence in Journalism Foundation, the Wyncote Foundation, the Public Welfare Foundation, The Renaissance Foundation and the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University School of Communication.
