To expand the Challenge Fund for Journalism, a program that teaches groups how to build their own organizations.
There are roughly 50 national journalism organizations in the United States. These groups promote higher professional standards. Some are more financially stable than others. The Challenge Fund for Journalism was created in 2003 to help seven journalism groups learn how to raise money from their members. This project will train up to eight journalism groups, nominated by Knight, in capacity building and challenge grant fundraising. Depending on their needs, groups will get technical assistance, capacity grants, peer learning and matching challenge grants. The TCC Group is a management consulting firm that works with funders and nonprofit organizations. This grant is a partnership with Ford Foundation and the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.
