Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the quantity and quality of media coverage on global financial flows, with a particular focus on tax abuse, corruption and money laundering. We deliver world class training in financial investigations from leading practitioners.

About us

The 161 journalists and campaigners we have trained are a global network covering 63 countries. We leverage that network to create international collaborative projects which break new ground in investigative journalism. The majority of our members come from the developing world and we focus on building capacity in developing world newsrooms.

Our Funding

Finance Uncovered is specifically funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust which in mid 2013 gave the Tax Justice Network a three-year grant to set up a journalism training programme. Earlier this year, we also received a one-off course grant from Oxfam Novib.


Until now, we have been a project managed by the Tax Justice Network funded by these specific grants. 


Last year, we incorporated as an independent not-for-profit company with the goal of raising the funds necessary to continue and build the project. 


We are currently actively fundraising and have also launched a column on Byline, the crowd funding site for investigative journalism. If you are a donor and would like to know how you can contribute to our project, please get in touch using the form below.

Journalists who have participated in our programme produce hard hitting investigative stories. Armed with the knowledge they have gained on the course they uncover the real stories that inform the public about global economic trends and illicit financial flows.

Below are a selection of stories produced by course participants.
