2020 Media Impact Forum

Our 2020 Media Impact Forum will take place June 2 at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York. We hope you’ll join us for this important event. Here’s what you need to know:
WHAT IS THE MEDIA IMPACT FORUM?
We’ve been hosting the Media Impact Forum since 2013 with the purpose of bringing funders together to network, deepen learning and spark collaboration. This is special because funders of journalism, documentary and other media seldom cross paths in their everyday work. The Forum provides a wonderful opportunity to come together for a day of inspiring media presentations and to stay up to date on current trends, issues and opportunities facing the field.
For example, this year’s Forum paid special attention to philanthropy’s role in creating and sustaining crucial connections with communities through new and innovative radio and audio projects. And in 2018, we focused funders’ attention to the special role of science in our national debates, the importance of sharpening the communication of science, and broader issues about understanding how and when communications and storytelling make a difference.
