Newsmatch Making a Lasting Impact in Communities Throughout the U.S.


Foundation: Knight Foundation

Karen Rundlet, director for journalism at Knight Foundation, writes an article originally published at kf.org. Her article tackles how "Americans still don't understand the full extent of the financial crisis facing newsrooms - though they’re more likely to give support once they do".

Rundlet cites more research that shows trust in local news, while greater than trust in national news, is still declining.

Rundlet highlights NewsMatch, a multi-million dollar campaign that matches individual donations to nonprofit news organizations, is running for the fourth year. Nearly 200 nonprofit newsrooms are participating in the matching-gift campaign.

At Knight Foundation, Rundlet tells that their mission to support informed and engaged communities is their "North Star". That tenet was behind Knight's launch of NewsMatch in 2016.

Rundlet addresses the need for nonprofit news organizations to step into their role and fill needs for news in communities. Read the Entire Article
