Highlights from our annual Journalism Funders Gathering

(Aside from being able to witness this beautiful San Francisco sunset)

We’ve come a long way since 2001, when a handful of journalism funders got together to compare notes. (We’re looking at you, Jon Funabiki, Vivian Vahlberg and Eric Newton!)

Last week, we convened more than 100 funders for our annual gathering to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing journalism today.

It was the perfect opening for this crowd—which represented our largest journalism funder gathering to date—who came together for two days of conversations about funder collaborations, supporting diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in journalism, strategies to combat news deserts, and much more.

MIF partners with RespectAbility to help advance funders' work on disability inclusion

Media Impact Funders has joined 18 philanthropic and nonprofit organizations to present a series of free online diversity, equity, access and inclusion training sessions on the nuts and bolts of how PSOs and foundations and their grantees can include people with disabilities from all backgrounds in their work. The series is hosted by RespectAbility, a nonprofit that fights stigmas around disability and advances opportunities so that people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of community.

This series of free webinars aims to give you and your teams step-by-step guidance and resources to help foundations and nonprofits on their journey. The next webinar will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13 | 1:30 p.m. ET.
