The Journalism portfolio recognizes and supports journalism as a critical element of a healthy and multicultural democracy.

Focus Areas

  • Underrepresented Groups and Voices in Media: The Foundation invests in journalism leaders and organizations that help increase coverage, stories, and amplification of voices of underrepresented and misrepresented communities. The American Mosaic Journalism Prize is part of this line of work, in addition to such leading organizations and projects as Futuro Media, TransLash, Our Body Politic, The 19th, and Radio Ambulante, among others.
  • Investigative Journalism: The Foundation supports key organizations conducting quality investigative journalism. This type of journalism, critical to holding the powerful accountable, is too often both expensive, time-intensive, and underfunded by newsrooms. Examples of our investigative journalism grantees include ProPublica, and FRONTLINE, among others.


To achieve this goal, we support nonprofit journalism organizations across two focus areas: underrepresented groups and voices in media; and investigative journalism.

The Journalism portfolio maximizes its support by funding outstanding leaders and key organizations, and awarding general support as often as possible.
