Fund for Independent Journalism in Monterey County


Dedicated to promoting independent journalism through enterprise reporting, free speech initiatives, story-sharing projects, and diversity programs — to help alternative newsmedia deliver outstanding journalism and create an informed citizenry.

The Big Idea

With a mission rooted in the foundations of our country, the Fund for Independent Journalism in Monterey County supports the in-depth reporting needed to create an informed citizenry. For years, newsrooms have cut jobs and eliminated expensive, time-consuming investigative reporting projects. This nonprofit’s Big Idea does the opposite, investing in enterprise reporting projects for the Monterey County Weekly, Monterey County NOW e-newsletter and multimedia newscasts. In addition to in-depth reporting, this nonprofit promotes free speech initiatives, story-sharing projects and diversity programs.

"Our community desperately needs you. Talk about essential service! Thanks for being there to shine a clear light on issues that matter."
