Institute for Nonprofit News (INN)

Accelerating and shaping the emerging field of nonprofit news


INN’s vision is to build a nonprofit news network that ensures all people in every community have access to trusted news. To that end, we pursue our mission of providing education and business support services to our nonprofit member organizations and promoting the value and benefit of public-service and investigative journalism.

About our journalism

The Institute for Nonprofit News strengthens and supports more than 350 independent news organizations in a new kind of media network: nonprofit, nonpartisan and dedicated to public service.

From local news to in-depth reporting on pressing global issues, INN’s members tell stories that otherwise would go untold – connecting communities, holding the powerful accountable and strengthening democracy. INN programs help these news organizations develop revenue and business models to support strong reporting, collaborate on editorial and business innovation, share services and advance the diverse leaders who are forging a new future for news.
