What we are and what we do
The Reporter Foundation primarily collects finances for The Reporter Magazine´s operations – to support high quality journalism.
The Reporter Magazine’s aim is to produce honest and independent journalism; stories that go beyond the surface and are thoroughly investigated. It focuses on investigative pieces, reports and stories from home and overseas; information from Central and Eastern Europe as well as literature and art. The magazine, monthly publication and a website was set up by Robert Casensky, former editor-in-chief of MF DNES which is the Czech Republic’s best-selling quality daily newspaper: he resigned after the publishing company was bought by a billionaire who is also an active politician. Although The Reporter Foundation’s aim is to support the particular media outlet, but if the amount of funds raised reaches a certain limit, those funds can be directed to other activities to further support good journalism in the Czech Republic. For example, the education of journalists and training, developing contacts between Czech and foreign journalists through seminars or conferences, paying for coverage of foreign events, overseas study trips or contributing to expensive and time-consuming investigative projects. The foundation shall regularly report on all of its activities.
