Here at the New Mexico Local News Fund, we are excited about our first Local News Matching Campaign. It is set to begin on November 30, 2021 to coincide with Giving Tuesday. The aim of this initiative is to assist local news organizations in the very important work that is key to sustainability, fundraising.
All types of local news (print, video, radio, & digital), nonprofit and for-profit alike are eligible to apply. A commitment to fundraise during the month of December is required with the potential of a $3000-$5000 match from the NM Local News Fund.
Newsrooms that don't qualify for matching funds may receive a stipend to help promote local news for the month of December.
We have partnered with News Revenue Hub who will be providing fundraising training, messaging and graphics, as well as one-on-one consulting.
Help us help you raise more funds! Application deadline was September 17, 2021.
