The Spinoff Longform fund is dedicated to investigative journalism. Our focus is on supporting in-depth reporting by our team, as well as freelance reporters within New Zealand. Your donation will help us sustain this most resource-intensive form of journalism, ensuring that the most complex and important stories still get told.
The fund covers costs and fees for journalists within and without of The Spinoff, as well as legal costs, which can be considerable. Every dollar donated is spent on journalism or its facilitation.
The fund has published an investigation into the exploitative culture of Pavement magazine across text and audio, and David Farrier's debunking of the claims of a Christchurch AI startup. We have two further investigations imminent.
