For Funders

We welcome support from individual 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 resilient — you can help strengthen our democracy.

Our philanthropy model enables transformative grants to Civic News Organizations, which are closely supported by our team as they grow. Your philanthropic donation in the American Journalism Project will multiply the resources available for local news gathering. We work alongside grantees to build a culture of philanthropy for a sustainable future.

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.
