Fact Hunt has been in operation since April 2018 and it was a completely voluntary effort till September 2019 when we decided to make it a legal entity. However, if a good fact-checking based journalism is to survive and thrive, it can only do so by being both editorially and financially independent. This is the reason why we haven't raised any funds from third party investors even though we have received multiple offers. This means we are relying principally on contributions from our readers and concerned citizens who have no interest other than to sustain a space for quality fact checking.
Till now, our fact-checking is online based. Due to shortage of funds, we have been unable to verify several claims which required us to send a fact-finding team to the field. However, going forward, we wish to expand our team and have more people in our fact-finding team to monitor and research about misinformation. As part of this expansion process, one of the highest priority is to create a pool of ground reporters who can verify the claim for us by doing on-site journalism.
We need your financial support in this expansion process. Please consider donating us. Rs 100, 500 or any other amount you want. Every penny will help us in our journey.
