How to Help
We are excited to announce that Science News has been selected to participate in Newsmatch, the largest grassroots fundraising campaign to support nonprofit news organizations.
The campaign launches today in newsrooms across the country and online at newsmatch.org., matching donations to 155 nonprofit newsrooms in nearly every state across the country, running through December 31, 2018. Each organization is eligible to receive up to $25,000 in matching funds for small-dollar donations from individuals up to $1,000.
Knight Foundation launched the inaugural NewsMatch in 2016, helping 57 nonprofit news organizations raise more than $2.4 million. In 2017, the campaign raised $4.8 million for nonprofit news organizations. The foundation added several major donors in 2018, including a $1 million contribution from the Facebook Journalism Project and $250,000 from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, which supports investigative journalism around the country.
NewsMatch is driven by the Institute for Nonprofit News and the News Revenue Hub, two organizations helping build more sustainable models for journalism in America. The campaign is supported by a diverse group of foundations including Democracy Fund, the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation, the Gates Family Foundation (through the Colorado Media Project), the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the Wyncote Foundation. The Miami Foundation serves as fiscal sponsor for the fund.
To help us keep delivering important and reliable science journalism, we invite you to capitalize on this opportunity and double your contribution to Science News through NewsMatch today!
