There is a bright side to the story of journalism in America today.

NewsMatch is a national matching-gift campaign to promote giving to journalism among U.S. donors and build the capacity of nonprofit newsrooms. Since 2016, NewsMatch has helped to raise more than $100 million for newsrooms as tens of thousands of new donors have made journalism a core part of their charitable giving.

NewsMatch 2020 will be announced at the INN Days conference in June 2020 and is open to active members of the Institute for Nonprofit News. The deadline to apply to INN in time to join NewsMatch is Jul. 31, 2020, and the NewsMatch application deadline will be in late August.
