Our Network

nodes-webMedia Impact Funders is a member-supported network of funders who seek to improve society through media and technology. We achieve this by serving as a learning resource for grantmakers interested in using media to further their missions. As a catalyst connecting funders and allies, we encourage their collaboration and support the ever-growing field of media that informs, engages and inspires.

Support our work by becoming a member of our growing network.

Your contributions enable us to educate funders on how best to use media to achieve their philanthropic goals, regardless of issue area. Your membership allows us to deliver these services:

Opportunities to connect and collaborate with– and learn from– your peers. 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. As an event-driven organization, we’re constantly bringing changemakers together, whether in-person or online, to make strategic connections with like-minded professionals. And we work with you to create topic-focused programs that reflect your interests. Explore our upcoming and past events. 

The latest data to maximize your impact. Media is one of the most powerful tool for social change, and we know it’s at the nexus of your work. As such, we’ve developed a tool that aims to help you better target your future contributions. Our newly revised mapping and research tool, Foundation Maps for Media Funding, will show you what’s being funded, and where. It enables you to dig deep into the numbers, networks , and trends surrounding media and philanthropy– and plan for what’s next. Explore the map.

Essential news from the field. As representatives of the network, we serve as information hunters, gatherers, and disseminators for the growing fields of media and philanthropy. 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, original research, and more. And with a research team that regularly reports on and tracks the latest tools and trends, we also serve as a knowledge hub for the burgeoning field of impact assessment. Explore our content.
