For media and journalism organizations, understanding how to get and keep funding from philanthropic foundations is often a mystery. We'll host a vibrant Q&A between funders and grantees from around the United States and shed some light on the decision-making process, offer tips for applying for grants and answer audience questions. This session is not just for non-profit media – come hear how for-profit local journalism organizations are attracting foundation dollars, too.
