Media Impact Funders Is:
  • A place to connect, collaborate and learn from your peers through can’t-miss programs and events.

    We know that media innovation and social change don’t happen in a vacuum; you need the time and space to discuss your work with your peers.

    Explore Our Events

    As an event-driven organization, we’re constantly bringing changemakers together, whether in-person or online, to make strategic connections with like-minded professionals.

    The annual journalism funders meeting, which Media Impact Funders has helped to convene over the last few years, is aimed at strengthening connections among members of this network and giving funders ample opportunities to discuss their current work among peers. Learn more about the Journalism Funders Network.

    We also work with you to create topic-focused programs that reflect your interests. Learn more about how you can work with MIF to bring a screening or media-related panel to your conference or convening.

  • A hub for maximizing and understanding impact.

    Media is one of the most powerful tools for social change, and we know it’s at the nexus of your work.

    Explore the Map

    As such, we’ve developed tools that aim to help you better target your future contributions. Our media grants data map, produced in collaboration with the Foundation Center, will show you what’s being funded, and where. The mapping and research tool enables you to dig deep into the numbers, networks and trends surrounding media and philanthropy—and plan for what’s next.

  • A platform for publishing your work and essential news from the field.

    We are information hunters, gatherers and disseminators for the growing fields of media and philanthropy.

    See Our Work

    Our website and monthly newsletters offer you thoughtfully curated news and perspectives from the field, profiles of important media projects created and/or supported by our members, funder spotlights and more.

    With a research team that regularly reports on and tracks the latest tools and trends, we also serve as a knowledge hub for the field of impact assessment.
