There is another 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 $14 million for newsrooms as tens of thousands of new donors have made journalism a core part of their charitable giving.

Information about NewsMatch 2019 will be available starting in June.
