TheStreet Foundation is dedicated to fostering financial literacy--a subject too often assumed in the financial media's coverage of business and economics and rarely explored in any great depth. TheStreet Foundation aims to remedy those shortcomings in mainstream reporting through hard-hitting, impactful investigative journalism. This is our raison d'etre! We believe that providing unwavering support to journalists so that corporate misconduct can be thwarted will help rebuild trust in the financial markets, which is still lacking today. We hope that our fist initiative in this area, TheStreet Foundation Fellows program, will be a beacon of journalistic integrity for the financial markets.
