International Fact-Checking Network offers global fact check fund

THE International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) at the Poynter Institute is inviting applications for its Global Fact Check Fund.

The fund will award grants in an open competition for one or a series of programs to support third-party organisations in strengthening the capabilities of fact-checking organisations across the world.

The fund will support verified signatories of the IFCN Code of Principles fact-checking organisations, as well as proposed partner organisations, over a three-year period.

Through multiple grant opportunities, this initiative will offer up to US$12 million in funding to recipients, in three tiers: up to US$25,000, up to US$50,000, and up to US$100,000.



    The fund has three phases: BUILD, GROW, and ENGAGE.

    The first phase, BUILD, will provide grants totaling up to US$1 million. Each recipient in this phase will receive up to US$25,000.

    Fact-checking organisations are eligible for an initiative that awards a total of up to US$12 million in grants.

    The deadline for the first phase is May 15, 2023. Those interested in the grant should apply here.
