Washington, D.C.

This is a funder-only gathering.

We are so excited to announce that our Media Impact Forum will take place on June 1, 2022, at the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. (Keeping the health and safety of our network in mind, we’ll switch to a virtual format if necessary. But for right now, we’re thrilled to be hosting our annual flagship event at the offices of one of our most valued partners.)

Join us for this annual gathering that brings the latest news and trends in media philanthropy together for an inspiring day of funder discussions, media showcases, flash talks, and more. The Media Impact Forum offers funders the unique opportunity to connect and find common points of entry into the critically important work of supporting media in the public interest.

Here’s what you need to know:

We’ve been hosting the Media Impact Forum since 2013 with the purpose of bringing funders together to network, deepen learning and spark collaboration. This is special because funders of journalism, documentary and other media seldom cross paths in their everyday work. The Forum provides a wonderful opportunity to come together for a day of inspiring media presentations and to stay up to date on current trends, issues and opportunities facing the field.

Funders will have the opportunity to:

  • Focus on the critical issues facing media philanthropy today
  • Dissect your media strategy with your peers
  • Hear inspiring stories of high-impact media, the strategies behind them and the funders who made them happen
  • Expand your network by networking with funders who represent national, place-based, and community foundations from across the country.
