There are many interesting experiments underway for funding journalism online, but Beacon Reader is one I pay attention to because it takes a collective approach — those who want to support a specific writer can sign up and then get access to the all of the rest of the work that has been funded through the site as well, and their financial contribution is shared among all of the writers.

Now the platform is launching a new feature: supporters can back a specific topic as well, with the first one organized around the theme of climate change.
