Borealis Philanthropy: Fund for Diverse-Led and Serving Media

Borealis Philanthropy works as a partner to philanthropy, helping grantmakers expand their reach and impact.

Why We Invested

The Fund for Diverse-Led and Serving Media at Borealis Philanthropy is a joint initiative between Democracy Fund, Ford Foundation, and the News Integrity Initiative. This fund will increase the amount of general operating support, capacity building, and organizational development dollars going to traditionally under-resourced outlets serving a diverse swathe of communities across the United States.

Democracy Fund sees these news organizations as a crucial part of the field of journalism, and is dedicated to investing in them directly to ensure that the information needs of every person in America is met.
