We support journalism that improves lives — and fights misinformation.

Core Beliefs

Our Guiding Principles

Free Access to News
Bridges Not Walls
Paywalls perpetuate inequity. We believe in a business model that prioritizes informing communities and doesn't wall off reporting that can improve lives — especially those impacted by forces such as institutional racism.
Earning Trust
The most successful newsrooms are constantly working to earn the trust of their communities. Only through open and honest dialogue do newsrooms inspire meaningful investment.
Community Investment
Everyone Steps Up
A healthy business model for news requires diverse support from all members of a community — including individuals, institutions, and mission-driven businesses.
