Despite more than 150 nonprofits engaged in investigative journalism worldwide, most groups are struggling for money. Many fail to apply their own reporting techniques to finding donors and to invest in "development." There's money out there, and our field continues to grow. but you need to have a solid strategy and a strong commitment. Here are three experts who can help guide your way: Maria Teresa Ronderos is director of the OSF Program on Independent Media, the largest private donor in international media development. Bridget Gallagher is a leading media fundraiser who has raised millions of dollars from private donors; her clients include GIJN, Internews, and PBS. And Leon Willems of the Global Forum for Media Development will talk about raising funds from governments and other public entities.
