FairWarning Awarded $100,000 by Charles Evans Foundation

FairWarning (www.fairwarning.org), the nonprofit, online news organization, has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the Charles Evans Foundation.

 

The award continues the Evans Foundation’s generous support of FairWarning, the Los Angeles-based investigative news operation  that focuses on issues of public safety and health, and government and business accountability. 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 been a fantastic supporter of our efforts to produce strong, public interest journalism,” said Myron Levin, executive director of FairWarning. “They have come through for us once again, for which we are deeply grateful.”

 

Established in 1988 by the late Charles Evans, founder of the Evan-Piccone fashion label and producer of the movie “Tootsie.” the Evans Foundation has supported a wide range of causes, ranging from fire safety and public health to projects to assist the disadvantaged. It is headed by Charles Evans Jr., a filmmaker whose forthcoming documentary “Addiction Incorporated,” tells the story of Philip Morris researcher and whistleblower Victor DeNoble, and his battles with the tobacco industry.

 

FairWarning has also received generous 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.

 

You can support FairWarning by donating online, or by contacting Myron Levin at myron.levin@fairwarning.org.
