Institute for Nonprofit News

Our mission is to provide the support necessary to help the news industry thrive. INN's projects are a vast repository of resources designed to meet the needs of today's nonprofit newsroom. Some are available exclusively to our membership; others are available to the public.

Why We Invested

The challenges of sustaining investigative journalism have been most pronounced at the local level with large reductions in the number of journalists working in news outlets focused on city or state level reporting. The Institute for Nonprofit News is dedicated to addressing this issue by helping nonprofit news organizations produce and distribute stories with impact, achieve cost efficiencies by pooling resources and develop new revenue streams to become sustainable businesses. In addition, INN has created the INNovation Fund which supports projects proposed by nonprofit news organizations to advance the economic sustainability of their newsroom.

By December 2015 we expect this grant to have supported the creation of a more robust collaborative community of outlets delivering investigative journalism at the local level.
