Media and Journalism


High-quality journalism and storytelling are crucial to a healthy democracy.


With an eye to news deserts and under-told stories, we focus on local and rural news outlets, investigative journalism, and a diverse array of unscripted and scripted content. We support journalists and storytellers whose work informs, inspires, and enriches our public square.
