JFunders, Media Impact Funders' annual journalism funders gathering, will take place Oct. 11 & 12 at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York City.

WHAT IS JFUNDERS?  This annual gathering, which began 20 years ago, provides an important opportunity to strengthen connections among journalism funders and to provide opportunities for funders to discuss their work and share ideas with one another.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND? We know that funders rely in part on the expertise of other funders. This meeting will help you make connections to peers who are eager to share best practices and lessons learned. By taking a broad view across the field of media funding to include many different types of platforms, issues and philanthropic goals, we are uniquely able to bring funders together around specific topics, connect funders and media makers who might not otherwise cross paths, and in the process, expand the field of journalism funding.

WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA? This year's agenda will feature discussions on solutions to rebuild local news, new initiatives in the field, innovative funding models, efforts to build and sustain media equity, and more. Stay tuned for more details as we continue to shape this program. In the meantime, see what we discussed at the 2022 Gathering.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? Members (in person): $500 | Non-members (in person): $700
