Non-Profit Models: Funding Options for Newspapers Today

About This Session:

This session will explore philanthropic and community funding options and opportunities for local newsrooms. As we navigate the extraordinary challenges confronting the sustainability of local journalism, new models have emerged to drive greater impact and capacity for local newsrooms. Led by The Seattle Times and its community funding initiative, a set of best practices and lessons learned have emerged. These are now being tested and adapted for markets all over the country. This session will provide an overview of these, as well as practical advice to publishers and editors who are interested in testing the model in their communities.
