The Spotlight Club is a network of investors who view data-driven, investigative journalism as critical to our community. Spotlight Club members invest in investigative journalism to ensure fearless, non-partisan reporters are looking out for the community’s best interest.

Our journalism acts as a watchdog on decisions, policies and practices affecting our daily lives. Your support means our work can dig deeper into the issues that matter and broaden our reach into more communities.
