About Journalism Funders Forum

The Journalism Funders Forum is an open community of European foundations and journalists working together to ensure more effective and impactful funding of journalism in Europe. We have three goals:

  1. Connect stakeholders from philanthropy and journalism in Europe.
  2. Ensure more effective and impactful funding of journalism in Europe.
  3. Increase the amount of philanthropic organisations funding journalism in Europe.

We do this through events, workshops, webinars, research, reports and newsletters. In order to promote direct and open discussion, Journalism Funders Forum is held under the Chatham House rule and has a strict no solicitation policy. Some events are invite only to facilitate better exchange of ideas, but all research and outcomes will be shared publicly.

The Journalism Funders Forum is kindly supported by Adessium Foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, News Integrity Initiative, Open Society Foundations, Schöpflin Stiftung and Stichting Democratie en Media.
