The Colorado Media Project (CMP), housed within the University of Denver’s Project X-ITE. CMP is an ecosystem-level convener, facilitator, and coordinator that will work to bring capacity-building expertise and implementation support to local news outlets as a means to meet the local news and information needs of all Coloradans now and in the future.

Why We Invested:

Democracy Fund is proud to support the Colorado Media Project in collaboration with the Gates Family Foundation. Colorado Media Project will catalyze the support of Colorado’s local news ecosystem. We believe healthy news ecosystems are a vital part of just communities and healthy democracies, and the Colorado Media Project will help provide long-term, sustainable support for the state’s local news organizations.
