Three funders join forces with The GroundTruth ProjectMay 23, 2018
The Tow Foundation, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and Craig Newmark Philanthropies have partnered with GroundTruth to support Report for America in its efforts to place 1,000 local reporters in host newsrooms across America over the next five years.
The GroundTruth Project, a nonprofit news organization that supports and inspires a new generation of journalists, will receive a total of $650,000 in multi-year funding for its new initiative.
“Report for America’s goal of launching the careers of aspiring journalists, while providing essential support for quality local journalism, is directly in line with The Tow Foundation’s efforts to educate the public on social justice issues. We are confident that the media partners in New York and Connecticut and the communities they serve will benefit greatly.” said Emily Tow Jackson, Executive Director and President, The Tow Foundation.
