The Society of American Business Editors and Writers has received a $25,000 grant sponsored by the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism, Ford, and James L. and John S. Knight Foundations for capacity building efforts.
This grant will match each dollar SABEW raises up to $25,000. The match will double your dollars, and if you have a corporate matching program, that would add to your own gift. Timing of your gift is important: Funds for this challenge grant must be raised by May 31, 2007, in order to receive the matching gift.
This challenge grant will support more training that will benefit the next generation of business journalists. By making a donation, you are not only supporting SABEW, but you are also investing in the future of business journalism. As Richard Zannino, CEO of Dow Jones & Co., recently noted at SABEWâ€™s 43rd Annual Conference, â€œwe ought to be investing in our [business journalism] to get ready for this digital age. Quality journalism matters more today than it has every mattered before.â€?
