How to Help
We are excited to announce that the Society for Science & the Public has been given the opportunity to participate in a prestigious matching gift program sponsored by the Knight Foundation. Science News has been chosen by the Knight Foundation to participate in their #NewsMatch program aimed at supporting quality, trustworthy, in-depth journalism.
From December 19 through January 19, the Knight Foundation will match donations to Science News up to $25,000. Other selected news organizations include ProPublica, National Geographic and PBS NewsHour.
To reinforce quality, reliable, and trustworthy journalism, and to help fight a trend toward fake news, the Knight Foundation has created the Knight News Match and invited 57 nonprofit organizations that have shown a commitment to reliable journalism to participate. Our invitation to join is a recognition of the quality and accuracy of our work in Science News.
Successful nonprofit journalism organizations need a passionate, dedicated community of supporters to help them be sustainable and to deliver important journalism. The matching fund will draw attention to the important work of nonprofit journalism organizations and help them expand their base of donors.
Now is the chance to double your contribution to Science News through News Match.
