News Match 2017

In 2017, the Rita Allen Foundation was one of nine funders joining News Match, a national campaign to match individual donations to nonprofit newsrooms from October 1 to December 31. The Foundation’s support helped to build the capacity of nonprofit news organizations, and provided additional funds to newsrooms specializing in trustworthy and critical science journalism. News Match 2017 was launched by Democracy Fund, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
