Knight Foundation $25K News Match

Today, VTDigger became the recipient of a $25,000 match challenge grant from the Knight Foundation.

This is a rare opportunity to make your money go twice as far to support our reporting, and help VTDigger reach our end of year fundraising goal.

With your help, and with this generous match, our goal is to raise $50,000 today.

The Knight Foundation will match your dollar-to-dollar donation to VTDigger, up to $1,000.

What is the Knight Foundation?

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.
