Please note: This is a funders-only gathering.


We’ve heard from our journalism funders network about how important it is to have the time and space to talk to one another. On Friday, May 24, we invite you to build that space with us.

Join us from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the National Constitution Center, where we’ll use an Open Space process to allow you to set the agenda. Our organizing question, “How is philanthropy catalyzing the reinvention of local journalism?,” invites conversation about a wide variety of topics and interpretations regarding funders’ roles in building a more resilient, representative and inclusive field. Stay tuned for more information as we confirm the agenda.

This half-day session follows our May 23 Media Impact Forum, and is targeted to funders who support journalism or are interested in journalism grantmaking.
