Workshop financial information
The Investigative Reporting Workshop operates under American University's 501 (c)(3) status. As such, it does not file a Form 990 with the Internal Revenue Service. However, we believe it is important to disclose information about our financial operations, including our overall budget and compensation of our top executive.
For 2016, the Workshop's budget is approximately $1.65 million.
Executive Editor Charles Lewis: Mr. Lewis receives an annual salary of $96,000 from the Investigative Reporting Workshop and additional compensation from American University, where he is a tenured faculty member in the School of Communication. His continuing employment by and compensation from the Workshop are subject to approval by the dean of the School of Communication.
