Nonprofit media organizations face a constant challenge: They provide high quality journalism for free, but in order to keep doing that, they need to find a steady source of funding. Enter the News Revenue Hub — an initiative launched in late 2016, with a mission to help other nonprofit news organizations learn how to build and run sustainable membership programs, crowdfunding campaigns, and other strategies for keeping readers engaged.

Today, the News Revenue Hub, whose staff is scattered between San Diego and Florida, work with 97 people from 15 publications across the U.S. on all aspects of fundraising, whether that’s advising on campaign content and creative, to implementing the back-end technology needed to run fundraising and membership programs year round.
