• Foundation Funding for Local Journalism

    More than 1,400 cities and towns in the U.S. have lost a newspaper in the last 15 years. And from 2001 to 2016, the number of newspaper employees in the U.S. has dropped by over half, from 412,000 to 174,000. The decline of local journalism poses a threat to democracy, but recent investments by foundations are trying to combat this downward trend.
