SPJ’s Deadline Club: 1 Stories

This 2012 investigation took a close look at the Society of Professional Journalists’ New York chapter’s annual scholarship and awards contest, discovering that the chapter’s foundation was delinquent in tax filings. The SPJ launched a review not only of the New York the club & foundation, as a result of iMediaEthics investigation, but sought to get all the clubs nationwide to comply with tax rules. In addition, the club and foundation, which spent more than 70 cents per dollar on expenses for its swank annual awards and scholarship dinner, increased the number and the amounts for scholarships since this report.
