Democracy Fund

The Miami Foundation

The Press Freedom Legal Clinic Fund, a fiscal sponsorship fund at The Miami Foundation, is a new joint fund to support legal clinics and centers focused on strengthening and defending the first amendment, media access, and transparency.


The Press Freedom Legal Clinic Fund will provide grants to support legal clinics’ growth, collaboration, capacity building, and experimentation. These clinics combine the skills of talented law students with legal scholars and practicing lawyers to take on cases both local and national.

Democracy Fund is excited to support this unique opportunity to invest in strengthening the Press Freedom Clinic Fund and to create a strong new force for First Amendment litigation and legal advice for newsrooms.
