Margo Smit – board member Journalismfund.eu

“In-depth journalism is widely recognised as a very effective tool in safeguarding a well-informed and viable society. When research subjects cross borders, journalism needs to do so too. Journalismfund.eu takes up the role of promoter of this type of journalism within Europe in an unprecedented way, it being the only fund facilitating cross-border research and storytelling. Donors are increasingly interested in providing actual working grants, but the necessary backbone to provide these grants may come up short in funds. Therefore, the lean and mean organisation of Journalismfund.eu needs your support!”
