The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is an independent non-profit organization. The Bureau pursues journalism which is of public benefit by undertaking in-depth research into the governance of public, private and third sector organizations and their influence.

The Bureau was formed and is funded on the assumption that investigative journalism is indispensable to democracy in providing the public with the knowledge and facts about the way in which important institutions in their society operate, so that they can be fully informed citizens. The Bureau believes that as the established media struggles with the impact of reduced resources alternative funding models are crucial to the survival of journalism which provides a public benefit, and such journalism can be a valuable addition to daily news output.
