About NewsMatch

NewsMatch is a unique collaboration between funders and newsrooms to boost financial support for nonprofit journalism and build long-term fundraising capacity. Funders interested in joining for 2020 can contact Josh Stearns jstearns@democracyfund.org.

Participating newsrooms must be active members of the Institute of Nonprofit News. Click here to learn more about becoming an INN member.

NewsMatch provides matching grants and professional development to nearly 200 nonprofit newsrooms while making it easy for anyone — donor, newsroom, foundation — to participate.

Since 2016, the campaign has helped raise over $100 million for nonprofit journalism, helping jumpstart small, emerging newsrooms, supporting newsrooms that serve or are led by underrepresented communities, and strengthening long-standing organizations.

The dollars from this campaign go toward supporting journalism which strengthens our democracy. Every day, journalists in nonprofit newsrooms dig deeper into the raw news of the day to deliver in-depth and investigative reporting that engages communities, advances solutions, and demands accountability. This journalism informs. This journalism matters. And this is journalism worth supporting.
