The donation will help The Fuller Project reach and engage local audiences around the world.
The Fuller Project, the global nonprofit newsroom dedicated to groundbreaking journalism about women, has received a $250,000 donation from Craig Newmark Philanthropies to sustain our reporting on the stories of women who often go unheard, while reaching and engaging local audiences around the world.
“This support will help us keep women at the center of the story, and bring our readers the context and history that defines good journalism,” said Xanthe Scharff, co-founder and CEO of The Fuller Project. “We are grateful for Craig Newmark Philanthropies’ continued support of our mission, the necessary work of fully representing all women to spur gender equality within and beyond our industry.”
This core funding from Craig Newmark Philanthropies will allow The Fuller Project to continue disrupting gender bias in the news industry, strengthening our collaborations with local newsrooms to deliver high-quality reporting on women in news deserts, and centering women’s own voices in the most important stories affecting women globally.
The crisis in local news has left an increasing number of communities in the United States and around the world without a single local newspaper. Where these outlets once served to bring communities together, act as watchdogs for corruption and sustain democracy at the local level, there is now growing vulnerability to misinformation. Building intentional long-term partnerships with local newsrooms allows The Fuller Project and our partners to deliver essential, fact-based and nonpartisan reporting about women to these underserved audiences. Our collaborations also enrich each newsroom in the partnership, growing source networks while sharing the research and evidence that underpins great journalism about women.
