The Investigative Reporters and Editors organization has created a fund in honor of slain Review-Journal journalist Jeff German, the nonprofit announced Thursday.

“In conjunction with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, IRE has established the Jeff German Fund for Investigative Journalism to provide journalists with training to continue the groundbreaking work Jeff has devoted his career to producing,” the organization wrote. in a Thursday newsletter.

The fund is accepting donations on the organization’s website and through Venmo, Facebook, and PayPal. The organization asks those who donate to write “Jeff German Fund” in the message or tribute line.

German, 69, was stabbed to death Sept. 2 outside his northwest Las Vegas home after nearly four decades of reporting on corruption, crime and the courts in Las Vegas.

Clark County public administrator Robert Telles, the subject of German’s reporting, was arrested September 7 in connection with German’s death.

German’s family set up a donation portal in his name last week with Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas. Those who donate can choose to help with six options, ranging from groceries for a month for a family of four to health-conscious foods for seniors.
