Free training on non-profit models for journalism

The Lenfest Institute is offering a free virtual gathering focused on the transformative work of fundraising in sustaining essential journalism.

The Lenfest News Philanthropy Summit will be held over two days on Tuesday, Jan. 31, and Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023. It is fully virtual and free to all. 

The theme of the Summit is Transformation. Through hands-on workshops, inspiring keynotes, and peer sharing, we’ll explore how we can transform the ways we sustain news organizations through philanthropic support, how to deepen relationships between development professionals and donors, how to re-imagine the role of institutional funders within the journalism space, and much more. 

Over the two days, we’ll evaluate the current state of news philanthropy, review our successes and challenges from the recently completed year, and lay the groundwork for how we can grow the field.

We’ll share strategies for how to leverage data and insights optimize fundraising for the year ahead in 2023, how to reach and engage new and more diverse funders, and how to utilize philanthropic funding to build a better future for journalism that is in service of our communities.

The Lenfest Institute provides grant funding, runs training programs, and synthesizes best practices to develop and disseminate sustainable solutions to the business challenges facing local news providers.

The Institute was founded in 2016 by the late cable television entrepreneur H.F. (Gerry) Lenfest. Lenfest gifted to the Institute an initial endowment of $20 million, which has since been supplemented by other donors, for investment in innovative news initiatives, new technology, and new models for sustainable journalism.

The Lenfest Institute is an innovator and a change agent developing scalable solutions across Philadelphia’s news ecosystem that apply nationwide.
