The Knight Foundation has been a long supporter of VTDigger. The Knight News Match continues the legacy of Foundation’s founders, John S. and James L. Knight, who believed that informed and engaged communities are essential to a healthy democracy.
This match is a call to action for everyone who believes in quality, trustworthy, in-depth journalism and the role nonprofit news organizations play in building strong communities.
We are honored to be a part of a select group of nonprofit news organizations to receive the Knight News Match challenge grant.
If you've been on the fence about contributing to VTDigger, we hope you will take this opportunity to have your gift matched and allow VTDigger to receive the full $25,000 grant.
If you've already given to VTDigger this year, we thank you. This match opportunity may not come around again, and we wanted you to know about it. We encourage you to share this news with others who may want to support our reporting.
Now, more than ever, VTDigger’s commitment to deliver in-depth, high-quality journalism is needed amid concerns about fake news and misinformation flowing unchecked on social media. That’s why Knight Foundation has launched this initiative to help ensure that quality, trustworthy and in-depth journalism thrives in local communities.
