Institute for Nonprofit News: Nonprofit News Insurance Program

The Institute for Nonprofit News is a critical organization providing support, training and networking for America's 150+ nonprofit journalism organizations.

Why We Invested:

The Institute for Nonprofit News is creating materials and resources related to libel and defamation insurance for nonprofit news organizations. The Institute is also expanding their insurance program and partnering with nonprofit organizations to develop short and long-term solutions to lowering the cost of insurance for nonprofit journalists around the country so they are protected against lawsuits related to their public interest reporting.

With the help of the Institute for Nonprofit News, nonprofit newsrooms and independent journalists will get the insurance they need so they can report freely without fear of intimidation or attack.
