Meet the New Media Makers
– and the Foundations that Make their News Sites Possible
Grant activity, to date:
From investigative journalism projects to ethnic news services, from community news venues to niche reporting sites, new media makers are launching news and information initiatives that are increasingly attracting support from community, family and other foundations.
From 2005 to today, J-Lab has tracked
million in grants awarded to at least
