Every person has a story – as does every nonprofit and charity in your community. Philanthropy is vast and under-covered, going well beyond Bill Gates and local houses of worship, and shaping healthcare, education, recreation and journalism.

Learn how to follow the money from three very different news organizations, and walk away with the knowledge you need to practice accountability journalism and how to apply it to other beats.
