Media Foundation

We're rethinking local journalism

The world is changing. Cars are driving themselves, robots are self-learning and burgers are now made without meat. Local journalism, meanwhile, has remained largely untouched – placing our democracy at risk and leaving our communities underserved.

We work with local communities, media organisations, brands and nonprofits to create a more sustainable future for local journalism


We're helping communities fund, own and manage their own newsrooms.

We're making brands matter by turning them into forces of positive change.

We're working with local media organisations to sustainably fund their journalism.

And we're working with charities and nonprofits to amplify their impact.
