"The purpose or purposes for which the corporation is organized are: exclusively for charitable, literary, or educational purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law) including such activities as providing journalism scholarships and faculty honorariums, conducting journalism seminars, making journalism merit awards, coordinating newspapers in education programs, collecting and preserving old printing presses and printing equipment, operating historical museums on a not for profit basis, and other journalistic activities deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors."

Activities

The Foundation conducts the annual Missouri Better Newspaper Contest to reward and encourage excellence in newspaper journalism. It operates a museum and newspaper office (circa 1850) for the general public at Arrow Rock, MO. Seminars and workshops are held on various phases of newspaper operations to improve skills of journalists. The Foundation also awards grants, awards and donations to deserving journalism students, teachers and institutions teaching journalism.

Missouri Press Foundation is supported by private contributions and memberships.
