Stay connected. Initiate and produce programming in collaboration with your peers—for your peers.
As part of our strategic imperative to better serve the developing and rapidly changing media funding landscape, MIF is deeply committed to keeping the field connected during this uncertain time. Our goal is to give members the time and space to connect, collaborate, share resources, build knowledge, and ultimately make more strategic investments and contributions toward their mission. We are committed to helping our members share solutions and strategies to respond to this rapidly changing crisis. And we remain persistently focused on how funders can best support media that informs, engages and inspires.
As such, members and supporters of Media Impact Funders now have the opportunity to initiate and produce issue-related programming for their peers. These hour-long online briefings are open to all MIF members, and are meant to provide more time to learn from one another to maximize the impact of their work. MIF will continue to serve the network with tailored and curated programming that explores a range of issues and opportunities in the media funding field.
