(Note: We currently have a fundraising goal of $30,000 for the Sustainable Journalism Endowment. When we hit that goal, it will unlock matching dollars and other support from foundations totaling $210,000. Please help us hit that goal by March 31.)
Cement your legacy,
support local journalism
The Sustainable Journalism Endowment’s express purpose is to further the mission and vision of NonDoc Media by creating long-term funding for journalism jobs in Oklahoma. By helping us grow this endowment, your financial support helps ensure NonDoc’s independence and sustainability for years to come. Put another way, your gift to the Sustainable Journalism Endowment makes an investment in the future of Oklahoma journalism.
Launched in late 2022, the Sustainable Journalism Endowment is established at and managed by the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. The endowment’s annual return guaranteed by OCCF essentially equates to $1 million of endowed funds funding one journalism job at NonDoc, and donors can sign agreements to support specific efforts.
NonDoc’s current priority areas for growing community journalism in Oklahoma include opportunities for endowing reporting positions focused on:
- Courts and criminal justice
- Tribal affairs
- Child health and welfare
- Specific local or geographical areas
With Oklahoma communities big and small grappling with the loss of reporting positions at traditional newspaper outlets, please consider making a donation today, or reach out to learn more about how the Sustainable Journalism Endowment can serve residents of our state.
