The Pivot Fund is a philanthropy organization dedicated to investing money into independent community news, prioritizing organizations led by and serving those who are Black, Indigenous, or Other People of Color (BIPOC). The Pivot Fund is a project of Online News Association, a fiscal sponsor and nonprofit membership organization for digital journalists.

This grant provides flexible support for The Pivot Fund to invest in BIPOC-led community news through funding, capacity building, trainings, and opportunities for collaborative journalism. The Pivot Fund’s work is based on the premise that, when BIPOC-led community news organizations can reach their communities effectively, our society is better informed and more connected.
