Democracy & Informed Communities: Funding the News

The American Journalism Project is a new venture philanthropy organization dedicated to local news. By providing course-altering investments and venture support to civic news organizations, we are building a new public service media that is governed by, sustained by and looks like the public it serves.

The economics that supported the news industry for most of the twentieth century are no longer viable. As a result, the civic function news provides is under threat.

We founded the American Journalism Project to help combat this threat. In other sectors, venture philanthropy has created sustainable new ecosystems that fill gaps left by the market. We are doing the same for local news.
