The center has received new financial support from charitable organizations affiliated with two of America’s great journalism companies. They are:
- The Philip L. Graham Fund, founded in 1963 and named after late Washington Post publisher and president of the Washington Post Company. The funds will go, in part, toward citizen media workshops and lectures, as well as general activities.
- The McClatchy Company Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the newspaper company. (McClatchy bought my former employer Knight Ridder last year, and I’m a shareholder as a result.) The funds are for general activities.
I’m delighted, and honored.
