The past two weeks have brought in three substantial funding grants for 2019.
The Weissman Family Foundation donated $75,000 to again support FIJ reporting grants in the coming year.
In addition, The Nara Fund donated $21,000. Of that, $6,000 is earmarked for continuing diversity outreach. Jonathan Ingbar, president of the Fund wrote, “All of us at The Nara Fund are inspired by the work that you do and we are honored to help support it, especially so at this time.”
That money had the added benefit of fulfilling a $25,000 matching challenge grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation.
And The Reva and David Logan Foundation – a long-time supporter – made a grant of $50,000 to fund even more reporting.
The FIJ board and reporting grant recipients are deeply grateful, and hope that the generosity will continue flowing through the holiday season.
