Knight Foundation-Funded Sites Gain Access To Kachingle

Kachingle is pleased to announce that the John S. and James L. Knight foundation is providing financial support that enables us to communicate the benefits of our voluntary social micropayment platform to Knight’s grant recipients, and support them in implementation.

Knight-funded sites can easily become part of Kachingle’s revolutionary new donation revenue model for online content, whereby people who enjoy news and information on the internet are able to reward great sites with a small ($5 per month) contribution that is divided up based on how often they visit each of their chosen sites.

Since the content is all still freely available, sites continue to get advertising revenue if they choose to, while also receiving the parallel revenue stream that comes from Kachingle.

Kachingle expects to welcome many new non-profit journalism sites to its rapidly expanding platform which already includes such well-known journalism sites as Center for Investigative Reporting, Chicago Talks, Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, and Carta.info.
