Why We Invested

The American Press Institute advances an innovative and sustainable news industry by helping publishers understand and engage audiences, grow revenue, improve public-service journalism, and succeed at organizational change.

Democracy Fund is proud to provide general operating support to the American Press Institute, an organization doing vital work helping newsrooms better engage with their audiences through data-driven tools and practices.
