Tyee Establishes Two New Charitable Funds

The Tyee, a Vancouver based on-line news source, is celebrating its second anniversary by launching two new charitable funds to support independent journalism in British Columbia.

The funds:

    * The Tyee Investigative Fellowship Fund.
      - provides resources for reporters wanting to research and document unfolding, possibly hidden problems facing BC

    * The Tyee Solutions Fellowship Fund.
      - provides support for journalists seeking to report on and explain promising experiments that might lead to solving those problems.

The funds are currently seeking donations with the objective of raising $30,000 by January 30th, 2006. The key thing ... if "you give now, your dollar doubles. That's because a generous donor has agreed to match the first $15,000 that Tyee readers give to support this exciting new initiative."
