This report, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a targeted snapshot of the state of global journalism funding today. It is not meant to be comprehensive. Instead, it’s a conversation starter, and we have included questions for discussion at the end.

Based on a survey of media funders and conversations with funders and journalists, this research—conducted by Dot Connector Studio on behalf of Media Impact Funders—provides deeper insights on how funders are examining their own journalism funding strategies.

In combination with this report, we have published complementary research on how 25 of the top journalism funders are funding journalism.
