Democracy flourishes when people have access to reliable information.

Today, we’re experiencing a crisis in news and information.

As local newsrooms have disappeared across America, communities have witnessed fading civic engagement, eroding social bonds, surging misinformation, and dwindling governmental accountability.

That’s why a coalition of funders is taking action.

Press Forward is a national movement to strengthen communities by reinvigorating local news. Learn more about Press Forward and our Funding Opportunities.

Our Open Call on Closing Local Coverage Gaps is now open.

Press Forward Locals: Trust Begins Close to Home.

Local chapters are an opportunity to create place-based initiatives, driven by the specific information needs of their communities.

We’re building informed and engaged communities. Join us.

We are proud of the broad coalition of funders that have joined together and we invite additional funders to enhance nonprofit, public, and for-profit news and information.
