3. Meet The Lenfest Institute for Journalism, one of our generous sponsors
The Lenfest Institute for Journalism is pleased to support the ASNE-APME conference. The Lenfest Institute for Journalism is the first-of-its-kind nonprofit organization whose sole mission is to develop and support sustainable business models for great local journalism. Based in Philadelphia, the Institute is the parent organization of the Philadelphia Media Network, publisher of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com.
Here's an overview of some of the Institute's programming:
The Institute has awarded grants to organizations in Philadelphia and nationally to help develop new business models, audience engagement methods and news products that enable high-quality journalism. In its first cohort of grantees, the Institute supported Berkeleyside's direct public offering, the News Revenue Hub's Learning Lab, the Resolve Philly collaborative reporting initiative and more. It will announce a new open call for grant applications this fall.
Together with the News Integrity Initiative, Democracy Fund and Knight Foundation, the Institute created the Community Listening and Engagement Fund, which provides subsidies for tools that help news organizations produce more relevant and trusted coverage for the diverse audiences they serve. Learn more about how to apply to CLEF here.
The Institute also recently launched the Lenfest Local Lab, a new interdisciplinary team that will build and experiment with products that help citizens learn about and connect with their communities. It's testing location and interest-based products, along with new ways to enable citizens to connect with journalists and with one another. If you'd like to collaborate with the Lab, please email Sarah Schmalbach, the Lab's director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Solution Set is a weekly email newsletter report published by the Institute and the Solutions Journalism Network that each week covers one innovative idea in journalism and shares replicable lessons and best practices. You can read past reports or sign up here.
