New resources added to NewsMatch HQ! 

Last week we sent a link out to the NewsMatch microsite. This is a place where NewsMatch participants can go to get updates, browse resources or seek help. Have you checked it out yet?

We're building it out by adding more content every week.

Next week's webinar: Rules and Reporting 

Next week's session is about how to prepare your reports for post-NewsMatch reporting. We know what you're thinking and all we'll say is, be diligent now so you're not scrambling for data right before the deadline. This session will feature Sheryl Saturnino from The Miami Foundation (a.k.a. the woman who will be sending you your checks!).

This session will take place next Wednesday, Sept. 4, at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET and will be recorded if you can't watch live.
Building out your profile is the central website where the public can look up participating newsrooms and make donations to multiple organizations at once. If you had a page last year, you can log in anytime to update your page. If this is your first NewsMatch, you'll need to create a new profile for your organization.

Instructions for both new and returning organizations can be found in the Campaign HQ.
