Welcoming Remarks & Lunch Keynote: Philanthropy's Role in Supporting Sustainable Local News

Across the country, foundations and philanthropists are coming to realize that local news and civic information is a critical element of a healthy community and democracy, and that they have a role to play in its future. Our news and information ecosystems are complex and evolving as media and technology change while at the same time local newspapers consolidate and disappear. Whether your goal is improving community safety, raising awareness about clean water, increasing civic participation, or any number of other goals, you won’t get far if your community lacks quality information and equitable ways to communicate and engage. Join the Knight Foundation for insight into how philanthropy can support the future of local news in Indiana—no matter how big or small your organization or community.
