Get excited about NewsMatch 2018!
NewsMatch is a national matching-gift campaign to promote giving to journalism among U.S. donors and build the capacity of nonprofit newsrooms. Now in its third year, NewsMatch has helped local newsrooms to raise more than $5 million as tens of thousands of new donors have made journalism a core part of their charitable giving.
NewsMatch 2018 will run from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, 2018.
NewsMatch is open to members of the Institute for Nonprofit News. The deadline to apply is Aug. 1.
