OVERVIEW: The Jonathan Logan Foundation awards grants to investigative journalism projects taking place in the United States and around the world.
IP TAKE: In addition to awarding grants for investigative journalism, Logan also offers grants for long-form nonfiction projects.
PROFILE: In November 2016, Daniel and Jonathan Logan officially resigned as directors of the Reva and David Logan Foundation. Daniel Logan established his own nonprofit, the Revada Foundation and Jonathan did the same, founding the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation. Although the Reva and David Logan Foundation fully funded Jonathan’s newly formed nonprofit, it is a separate and independent entity. The Logan Family foundation “[s]upports organizations that advance social justice by promoting world-changing work in investigative journalism, the arts, the environment, education, equity and inclusion, and documentary film.”
The foundation’s tax filings indicate that past grant awards have ranged in amount from $500 to $50,000. Past journalism grantees include the Fund for Investigative Journalism and Investigative Reporters & Editors (IRE). To learn more about the type of work Logan supports, explore its grantees list.
