On behalf of board members Mary Lou Fulton of The California Endowment and Kathy Im of The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Media Impact Funders is pleased to invite you to a two-day gathering of journalism funders from April 12-13 at the California Endowment in Los Angeles, California.

The agenda will include a discussion on how journalism funders are sharpening the focus of their current and future work in response to the current political environment. Through presentations and small group discussions, they will also explore some of the most pressing issues facing journalism today, including threats to journalism, diversity in in the field, and the need for new forms of participatory civic media.

Attendees will have ample time to share major initiatives in the field, highlight specific journalism projects, and identify potential opportunities for collaboration. As a group, attendees will make a site visit to a local media outlet. There will also be opportunities to set up informal one-on-one or small group meetings.
Media Impact Funders helps convene this annual journalism funders meeting, whose purpose is to help strengthen connections among members of this network, and give funders the time and space to discuss their current work among peers.
