The Fund for Local Journalism - LMF


The impact of COVID-19 has been especially devastating for communities of color. In order to provide additional support to these audiences, the LMF has created a separate opportunity to support publishers serving communities of color as part of The Fund for Local Journalism. These publishers need resources to serve their readers, users, and viewers and continue their commitment to informing and educating their audiences. Your donations will help fund investigative reporting that will shine a light on issues and topics that are of unique interest to audiences of color.

Your contribution to The Fund for Local Journalism will help us provide funding for local investigative reporting projects that provide an important public service in communities across North America.

Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please consult your tax advisor for details.

Local Media Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable trust affiliated with the Local Media Association, one of the largest local media trade associations in North America. More than 3,000 local newspapers, broadcasters, digital news sites and R&D partners are involved in LMA initiatives and programs.
