FairWarning.org, a Calfornia-based website that covers safety, health and corporate conduct, has been awarded more funding.
Hieronymus Charities, the family foundation of best-selling mystery writer Michael Connelly, recently donated $10,000 to FairWarning.
Connelly, a former Los Angeles Times reporter, has a global following as the author of the acclaimed Harry Bosch murder mysteries and “Lincoln Lawyer” legal thrillers. His books have been translated into 39 languages and have sold more than 45 million copies worldwide.
The Streisand Foundation has donated $5,000 to support environmental health reporting by FairWarning. The foundation provides funding for causes important to recording artist Barbra Streisand, including civil rights, women’s health and environmental protection.
“These grants will help to advance our mission of providing strong accountability journalism,” said Myron Levin, executive director and editor of FairWarning, in a statement. “And, of course, we are grateful that our efforts have been recognized by these two great artists.”
