Publication date: 
November, 2013

A must-read for anyone interested in supporting news and information projects, this report explores how 18 organizations raise and spend money and the role that reach and engagement play in their efforts to connect with audiences and derive revenue from those connections. Organizations that participated in the study fall into three broad categories: Some focus primarily on local city or town news, some on statewide reporting and others on investigative projects at the regional or national level.  The report provides a benchmark for nonprofit news organizations and funders to develop new strategies and models for future growth.
