For Funders

We welcome support from philanthropists, family foundations, institutional funders, and corporate partners who understand the urgency of the decline in local news and the threat to our democracy.

By supporting social entrepreneurs rebuilding local news in communities across America — with journalism that is fact-based and vetted — you can help strengthen our democracy.

Your gift to the American Journalism Project will multiply the resources available for local news gathering and help to build a culture of local news philanthropy that is good for democracy, good for communities, and good for people.

To learn more about how you can fund our work at the American Journalism Project, please contact Alice Rhee, Managing Director of Strategic Partnerships & Growth, at

The American Journalism Project is a 501(c)3 organization.

Reliable sources of trustworthy, local coverage help to ensure the public is informed, and that’s critical to a healthy democracy.
