Shoutout to Local Media Association for launching Center for Journalism Funding

From Tom Silvestri, Executive Director, NAM Relevance Project

Tom Silvestri

Congratulations to NAM member Local Media Association for launching the Center for Journalism Funding with Google dollars. Among the center’s goals: “Strengthen the understanding and capabilities of local news organizations regarding fundraising programs and working with philanthropic organizations to support journalism projects.”

The Relevance Project agrees that finding funders to support newspaper causes isn’t easy. We need all the help we can get, especially as America and Canada need more journalists.
Also, eagerly looking forward in August to seeing LMA’s NewsFuel, a platform that matches funders with journalism projects. Hope this helps NAM associations’ foundations as well in their admirable missions to be super-relevant to their members.
